Unacceptable risk: Appeal against parenting orders & Allegations of sexual abuse

In a recent Appeal of a decision of the Family Court of Australia, the Appellant Court reviewed orders between the parties in respect of their two children under Pt VII of the Family Law Act 1975.

The orders made provision for the children to live with the mother and for her to have sole parental responsibility for them.

Relevantly, however, the orders also made provision for the children to spend time and communicate with the father and required the parties to ensure the children’s consultation with a psychologist appointed by the Independent Children’s Lawyer.
