    I'm the primary carer of our kids. My ex stopped seeing the kids 5 months ago and breached family court orders.She remarried and has a new baby.

    When I tried to call her asking why she's not seeing kids, she instead tried to put a DVO on me and asked me not to contact her and not force her to see kids.

    I'm planning to move interstate to start afresh. Will I be in trouble moving without telling her cause she told me already not to contact her in a voice recording?

    There is no remedy to force an unwilling parent to see their child and it would not be in their best interests to do this when the parent is only seeing them begrudgingly.

    What do your orders say? Do you share parental responsibility? If needed you can make an ex party application to the court.

    I would advise her of your intention to relocate (and if she has any objection to the move?) prior to doing so, to cover yourself.

    I'll need to watch out for autocorrect on iPad before I post. Post above was meant to read ex parte.

    Hi Marty
    Need some help here, just to know what can happen. I have a court hearing in days.
    I relocated from Queensland with kids 10 months ago now and settled fully in Victoria.
    I was the primary parent of the children but mum allowed four nights in a fortnight which hasn’t been doing at all due to her lifestyle.
    It’s now ten months mum is filing for recovery orders.
    I was given two months to respond to her initiating Application and recovery order application.
    What do you think. I know you are not a legal advisor.
