Court Orders

If there is a Court Order that affects your child, a copy must be given to the Director or the Nominated Supervisor. It will be placed in your child’s confidential file. The Family Law Act changed in June 1996. Parents who have legal Contact Rights to their child are now able to contact their child while the child is at the Centre. If you have an existing Custody Order this will now NOT STOP your child’s other parent from contacting and visiting the child while they are in the centre’s care. If you wish your child’s other parent to have no contact with your child at the Centre please make sure you have a legal document confirming this.
