Obligations are different to rights. Depending on orders, one parent often has an obligation to facilitate access for the other parent. The person with the right of access can elect to take up that right or not. Their choice and in most situations there is no breach if they do not access their right.... it's a fact that parenting orders create a legal obligation, & that obligation is that BOTH parents abide by the orders ...
Travelling from NSW to QLD to see a child is not a legal duty or legal obligation in most situations. It is a legal right.
How the QLD public service views the travel is up to them. They may allow the travel, they may not. Their choice. Disease does not respect family court orders and I do not see why QLD should make any exceptions for family visitations. I'd hope QLD keeps their citizens safe by being careful. We've already seen in Vic how people lie when told they must self-isolate, do you think some people missing their children will not do the same thing?
