Wolter & Wolter 2014 FamCA 485
A father submitted that the mother had contravened orders on 23 occasions. The mother submitted that the father had made three contraventions of orders.
Contraventions cited by the father included that the mother had not responded to the father’s texts, the mother did not pass on school reports or notify the father about school meetings, the children spent time with members of the mother’s extended family without the father being informed, and the children brought medication to a handover without the mother first informing him of the need for medical treatment. The mother reported that the father had not informed her of people who were staying at the father’s house while the children were present.
The judge found that all of the contraventions were of a minor nature and did not have a long term effect on the children. The judge dismissed all applications.
