    So you apply for parenting orders to have the child returned to Australia. You need to contact the Attorney General's Office for advice on how to proceed.

    You'll need to apply to the Family Court (not the Federal Circuit Court) for urgent, interim and final orders.

    Urgent - Recovery of child.
    Interim - How you want 'custody' to work while final orders are worked through
    Final orders - How you want to parenting to work in the longer term.

    I'd also be asking for a costs order against your ex for the urgent orders you are seeking. Not sure of your chances of a costs order being granted but worth a try.

    The actions of your ex are likely to work in your favour in the short and medium term so take advantage of it while you can.

    If you can't afford a lawyer at least ask at your local community legal centre for some advice on how to go about getting your child back.
