Meaning of contravened an order

                   A person is taken for the purposes of this Division to have contravened an order under this Act affecting children if, and only if:

                     (a)  where the person is bound by the order--he or she has:

                              (i)  intentionally failed to comply with the order; or

                             (ii)  made no reasonable attempt to comply with the order; or

                     (b)  otherwise--he or she has:

                              (i)  intentionally prevented compliance with the order by a person who is bound by it; or

                             (ii)  aided or abetted a contravention of the order by a person who is bound by it.

Note:          Parenting orders may be subject to any subsequent parenting plan (see section 64D). This means that an action that would otherwise contravene a parenting order may not be a contravention, because of a subsequent inconsistent parenting plan. Whether this is the case or not depends on the terms of the parenting order.
