Hi, I am Leon, a NSW Solicitor. I will be assisting you with your question. If you choose a telephone call, you will be charged an additional fee.
Do the orders specifically say where the children are to reside?
If you are taking then 4 hours away you should speak to the father and get his consent. Also you should advise where the children will be staying and any contact numbers.
If you will be away when the father is to have the children and you do not advise him you will have problems and he will have a right to seek orders for a contravention. It is always best that you offer him alternatives to the day he will lose eg. a long weekend the next time he has the children etc.
Make sure all this is in writing and if he does decide to take you to court you have evidence that he was being unreasonable.
This is all you can do.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
Because you have an agreement that has been working he can rely on that.
This is why I am saying best to advise and come across and the party that is willing to work with him. I hope this is clearer?
