256A Children's Court may dispense with service

(1) If the Children's Court is satisfied that an unacceptable threat to the safety, welfare or well-being of a child or young person or a party to any proceedings would arise if any notice or other instrument required or authorised by this Act was given to, or any document served on, a particular person, the Children's Court may make an order dispensing with the giving of notice or instrument to, or service on, the person concerned.
(2) An order under this section excuses every other person from the requirement to comply with any provision of this Act that requires notification to, or service on, that person.
