Family violence orders

             (1)  A party to a proceeding who is seeking a parenting order in relation to a child must file a copy of any family violence order affecting the child or a member of the child's family.

             (2)  However, if a copy of a family violence order is not available, the party must file a written notice setting out:

                     (a)  an undertaking to file the order within a specified time;

                     (b)  the date of the order;

                     (c)  the court that made the order; and

                     (d)  the details of the order.

             (3)  The family violence order, or the notice under subrule (2), must be filed:

                     (a)  when the proceeding commences; or

                     (b)  as soon as practicable after the family violence order is made.

Note:          The Family Law Act imposes duties on the Court and lawyers to provide information about non-court based family services and court's processes and services (including services provided by family counsellors and family dispute resolution practitioners), and services available to help with a reconciliation:  see sections 12E and 12F of that Act.
