FAMILY LAW REGULATIONS 1984 - REG 31

Cancellation of registration in reciprocating jurisdiction

             (1)  Where:

                     (a)  a maintenance order made in Australia is, under the law of a reciprocating jurisdiction or a jurisdiction with restricted reciprocity, enforceable in that jurisdiction; and

                     (b)  the court in which the order was made is satisfied that there are reasonable grounds for believing that the person against whom the order was made is not resident in, or proceeding to, that reciprocating jurisdiction, or it appears to the court that there is some good reason why the order should no longer be enforceable in that jurisdiction;

the court may direct that steps be taken to cancel the registration of the order in that jurisdiction.

             (2)  Where a court directs under subregulation (1) that steps be taken to cancel the registration of an order in a jurisdiction, the relevant Registrar of that court shall send to an appropriate authority in that jurisdiction a request in writing that the order be no longer enforceable in that jurisdiction.

             (3)  Where a court directs under subregulation (1) that steps be taken to cancel the registration of an order in a jurisdiction, the order shall cease to be enforceable in that jurisdiction for the purposes of these Regulations.
