    I have consent orders that require one party to pay all outgoings on a property. They are currently 2.5K approx. behind in these payments and multiple letters have been sent. Is it worthwhile filling a contravention order?

    This is a continual issue ever since the orders were made in '14. Delays constantly in this coming before court again. Is it worthwhile?

    I am trying to get an agreement on final orders and hoping to apply some pressure but don't want to annoy the judge or waste court time?

    Is there any benefit?

    Thank you

    As you have stated, this is a continual issue so you should consider what you want to achieve. The Courts remedies can range from enforcement, to an order of punishment for failure to obey an order. If you want an outcome like this it might be appropriate to file a contravention order.
