About the Webinar

The enforcement of parenting orders has always been problematic in family law. Despite the rule in Rice v Asplund, it is common for contravention proceedings to be treated by some parties as an attempt to relitigate and there is a perception that this trend has increased following, and may be facilitated by, the new approach to contraventions in the FCFCoA. This session will take a deeper dive into these issues, including:

  • The new contraventions list and related court procedures under the new FCFCoA and different approaches to managing such matters across registries
  • The current status of the principle in Rice v Asplund and whether that principle remains good law and/or has a place in the current court practice and procedure
  • How to manage ‘repeat offenders’ and how they may be dealt with by the court in the first and subsequent contravention proceedings
  • Guidance and tips for practitioners when faced with this scenario
