Legislation to address weaponizing of children post-separation

The court has strengthened existing provisions to prevent repeated applications involving children which now form part of the definition of coercive control. 

Barring orders will now make it harder for serial applicants to oppress a child's parent by constantly making groundless applications to the family court. 

An extra level of special permission will be required before the application is processed and the other parent is notified.

Barring orders – strengthened guidance on section 91(14) to stop repeated applications
