Intervention Orders and Family Law Proceedings During COVID-19
Applications for Intervention Orders in family law matters have become increasingly complex during COVID-19. The result of an Interim Intervention Order may see children being withheld from one parent and may impact on the prospect of settlement.
By reference to recent cases and updates, this session will explore the consequences of making an Application for an Intervention Order whilst family law proceedings are contemplated or commenced. Our presenter will also discuss how Covid-19 and lockdown measures have affected the application of an IVO and how they might be adhered to, as well as whether such Applications are being used as an abuse of process and how to respond and advise.
This session will also include powers under the Family Law Act (sections 68 and 114) for Orders relating to sole occupation and use of a property.
