This case leaves some wonder about the continued use or reliance on "case Law" from pre July 2006 cases and the issue of "Meaningful involvement" vs "Quality time" Both issues need to be carefully explored in this judgement which uses an older Federal Magistrates judgement from Kay J but it appears on the face of the judgement a sound and well agreed matter by the parties in the end. A difficult road for the Family Court Judge.

Pity we cannot get to read the "excellent case outlines" he refers to.

The great shame is the use of the word 'inevitable' when there are many relocation cases being won by Fathers.
Its seems that neither the Courts or Family Realtionship centre staff can agree on what consitutes 'meaningful' or 'substantial'

I had thought there was a clear definition of the words 'meaningful' or 'substantial' in the new Act. I will dig out the AG's explanatory memorandum.
