Simplified outline of Division

             (1)  This Division deals with the powers that a court with jurisdiction under this Act has to make orders to enforce compliance with orders under this Act affecting children.

             (2)  The court always has the power to vary the order under Subdivision B. In doing so, the court will have regard to any parenting plan that has been entered into since the order was made (see section 70NBB).

             (3)  The other orders that the court can make depend on whether:

                     (a)  a contravention is alleged to have occurred but is not established (Subdivision C); or

                     (b)  the court finds that a contravention has occurred but there is a reasonable excuse for the contravention (Subdivision D); or

                     (c)  the court finds that there was a contravention and there is no reasonable excuse for the contravention (Subdivision E for less serious contraventions and Subdivision F for more serious contraventions).
