I found this booklet very useful, I used it as a guide for my parenting plan. I live in Australia and could not find any thing on this level

QUESTIONS

  • If a parent has court ordered supervised visits with specific day, time, and location designated by the court are they able to see their children outside of this court ordered time and place?
  • eI have a parenting plan that has been in place for some years now, my child is about to be 5 which is school age. How can I get a modification of just the parenting plan or will i have tso modify child custody and visitation? Are there any forms that I can file myelf? I dont mind how the custody arrangement was set in place or child support years ago, i just need an order that states the parenting time needs to be changed because the child has reached school age. When school starts in August and I dont honor the order in place bc child cant miss school, will i have my rights taken away?
  • I have been divorced for 10 years. My 12 year old daughter recently told me her dad was driving drunk and ran off the road with her in the car. She didn't tell me until she returned after their visit. What should I do? He would take it out on her if I confront him, but I need to protect her. This isn't the first time he has driven her after drinking.
  • I am representing myself in court in regards to visitations and I am needing to subpoena records from my childrens therapist for the hearing in January. How do I do this?
  • When the non-custodial parent has parenting time is the custodial parent allowed to request parenting time during that time? For example winter and summer Vacation that are one to three weeks long?
  • Please describe what the courts look at for "best Interest for the child". Do they take into account what the child(ren) want?
  • My kids father and I have joint legal custody and he has visitation every other weekend from Friday to Sunday. He constantly moves and now his current apartment is a 1 bd 1 ba. His parents and daughter live with him. So once our 3 kids are there that is 3 adults and 4 kids in this place. My kids told me they sleep on the floor, on a couch, or even in a large walk in closet. Also for the second time they have come back with bug bites all over their legs, arms, and even faces. What steps I can take so they are only can only be there during the day until he changes his situation?
  • My ex fience left me for another girl when I was 8 month's pregnant, he showed up the day I was induced and left 2 hour's after our son was born never signing the birth certificate or meeting me after to sign papers he always had an excuse, he finally told me because I was having so much trouble getting Dr appointments and other help because our baby had no last name he told me to give him my last name, so I did he does not have his father's last name. Our son is almost 11 month's old now he wants to see him and get paternity test can I refuse visitation since he didn't want to see him before?
  • I just filed an Enforcement of visitation and now the other party is willing to grant me visitation. Since we are in total agreement how do I let the Judge know? It says on the document that if we come to a agreement we have to let the courts and judge know.
  • During Thanksgiving holiday the paper states the vistation ends at 6pm but the weekend falls on the custodial parent. Does the non custodial get the kids
