Supervised Contact Or No Contact With Children (Court Ordered)

The Family Law Act 1975, and the Family Law Courts, emphasise the importance of a parent-child relationship, and accordingly it can be difficult to make a case that a child spends no time with his or her parent. A parent-child relationship, and time with that parent, is not to be seen as a right of the parent but as a right of the child. The right of the child to spend time with their parent however is subject to whether it is in the best interests of the child. A child’s time with a parent can be restricted by the Family Law Courts to either supervised time or to no time at all if the Court considers that such time would expose the child to an unacceptable risk.
