VIC Is a threat to withhold children from ordered time a contravention in itself?

    Hi,

    If one party threatens to withhold the children during time that they are meant to be with the non-custodial parent, is that a contravention in itself, or does one have to wait for the contravention to occur before taking action? The specific example is that the orders are for one week each during a fortnight of holidays, but custodial parent believes she has grounds to withhold them for 1.5 days.

    A threat is not a contravention.. 1.5 days is not a great deal of time and probably not long enough to take to court... unless it's a regular thing that occurs during holiday periods... What are her 'grounds'?

    I'd be having a chat to your solicitor....
    Look one contravention isn't a big deal (I KNOW - I Know - it should be, otherwise what is the point?)
    How old are the kids and what 'reason' is the ex giving?
