Self representing and I cannot find information regarding the jurisdiction of the cereal magistrates court on a variation of spousal maintenance order to extend. Application put in in 8 weeks before expired and allocated court date 10 weeks after application submitted, so 2 weeks after expired. Need some help to justify the jurisdiction as it can only be varied when in force and I am hoping it can be varied despite the 10 week wait. Please let me know if you have anything to help me with this application. FAMILY LAW ACT 1975 - SECT 90MG Meaning of in force (1) A financial agreement is in force at any time when it is binding on the parties in accordance with section 90G.
