What if my children’s names are on the Airport Watch List & the mother & father of the children agree that the children can travel either for a single purpose or another reason?

16/07/2014

The Court may have, for example, made an order that the child/children can travel with one parent on certain terms and conditions.

Steps are required so that you do not find yourself at the airport with an existing Airport Watch Order which prevents you from taking the child/children on an overseas holiday or other agreed or Court sanctioned overseas trip.

If your child/children’s name(s) are already noted on the Airport Watch List, pursuant to an existing order of the Court, this order will remain in place until further order of the Court is obtained directing that they be removed.

Often parents forget about the fact that an order such as this exists and then at the time when they try to depart Australia with the child/children for the purposes of a holiday many years after the final orders have been put in place, they are prohibited from doing so. If you require assistance to amend final parenting orders which include an Airport Watch List order then please contact us to discuss this matter further.
