If more than 1 person has contact with the child, specify this information for each person].
Effect of interim parenting order
While exercising the role of providing day-to-day care for a child, you have exclusive responsibility for the child's day-to-day living arrangements, subject to—
The court imposes the following conditions: [specify any conditions to which the interim parenting order is subject that have been imposed by the court].
|*Omit this paragraph if it does not apply.|
Duration of interim parenting order
Unless the court orders otherwise, this order continues in effect until the earliest of the following:
[state specific date that is 1 year after the date the order was made]:
until it is replaced by another order:
until the child attains the age of 16 years.
Application to be made under Care of Children Act 2004
If under this order you have either the role of providing day-to-day care for a child, or contact with a child, you must as soon as possible make an application under the Care of Children Act 2004 for a parenting order.
However, you do not need to make an application if some other person has already made an application under the Care of Children Act 2004 in respect of the child and that application has not been determined.
Consequences of non-compliance
You must comply with the conditions of this parenting order. If you do not, another party may apply to the court to enforce the order. The Family Court may choose from a variety of tools to remedy the non-compliance. For example, you may be required to pay a bond to ensure you do not contravene the parenting order again, or to meet the reasonable costs incurred by the other party because of your contravention. The court may admonish you, or vary the order, for example, by reducing the amount of time you have with the child. The court takes non-compliance very seriously.
It is also an offence, without reasonable excuse and with the intention of preventing compliance with a parenting order, to contravene a parenting order. The penalty for this offence is imprisonment for a term not exceeding 3 months or a fine not exceeding $2,500.
