What is Contravention of Property Orders?

“The Family Law Act 1975 (CTH), also known as “The Act”, deals with the contravention of parenting and property orders.

According to the Section 112AB, the respondent, also known as “the person in contravention, must have:

  • Failed to comply with court’s order intentionally

Or,

  • Made no reasonable efforts to comply with the court’s order.

However, in some cases, the parent accused of contravention of property order may be excused for having a genuine reason for non-compliance. This includes:

  1. The respondent contravened the court order because they did not understand the obligations imposed by the contravention order.
  2. The court found the respondent to have a genuine excuse for contravention.

That said, pursuant to The Act’s Section 112 (AB), the court has the authority to make orders if the respondent has no reasonable excuse for contravention of orders. The penalty may include a fine, a bond or imprisonment.

Contravention in Parenting Matters

Division 13 (A) of The Act 1975 deals with contravention in parenting issues. The Section 70NAC of “The Act” determines contravention when the respondent is also known as the person in contravention:

  • failed to comply with court orders intentionally
  • Fails to provide a reasonable excuse for contravention of court’s order under section 70NAC.
  • Made no reasonable efforts to comply with court orders.

  1. Subdivision D: Contravention was established, but the court believes that the respondent has a reasonable excuse for their actions.
  2. Subdivision E: Contravention established, but the court believes the respondent has no reasonable excuse for contravention – for less serious breaches (70 NEA)
  3. Subdivision F: Contravention established, but the court believes that believes the respondent has no reasonable excuse for contravention – for more serious breaches (70 NFA)
