    With First Directions on the relocation list heard last month, and hearing not till later this year, my kids are currently staying with their father. I have moved interstate with my partner. My ex won't let the children visit until the court seals the interim consent orders, even though we have both signed the document and agree to the conditions of the visit.

    Do we have to wait for the court to approve the consent orders even for a visit for the holidays, particularly when both parents want the visit to happen?

    No, you don't have to wait for the court seal as agreement always overrides orders anyway, but orders are not enforceable by the court until the orders are sealed.
