The end of the school year is fast approaching and so is Christmas! In family law this is a time when we start to see families make arrangements for the school holiday’s and Christmas (if they haven’t already done so).
Unfortunately, if no agreement can be reached between you and your former partner as to how the children will spend time with each of you during this period, then you might be left with no other option but to seek the assistance of a Court.
If that is the case, it is important to remember that any parenting Application to the Court, seeking Orders for school holiday time, needs to be made by no later than 4pm on the second Friday in November. This year, the deadline is 4pm, Friday 13 November 2020.
If you don’t file your Application by this time, your Application may not get considered prior to the school holiday or Christmas period, but sometime in the New Year.
