Minutes of Consent

Correct wording etc..

I drafted my own 'Minutes of Consent' and just need to know if it is written correctly.

My goal:
-To discharge previous orders
-To maintain residency
-To obtain full parental responsibility for the decisions as to the long-term care, welfare and development of my child.
-To obtain a passport for my child without requiring the consent of the respondent.
-To ensure that the respondent does not have any rights in relation to re-appearing in my child's life without first attending a mediation session and obtaining further court orders to allow such contact. (also meaning he can't just turn up at the school one day and take him, or turn up at my house announcing that he is my child's father and demand contact etc)

My draft of 'Minutes of Consent'


Applicant Mother:
Respondent Father:

It is agreed between the parties as follows:
1.   That all previous orders be discharged.
2.   That the child <insert name> born <insert DOB>, lives with the Mother.
3.   That the Mother has sole responsibility for the decisions as to the long-term care, welfare and development of the child.
4.   That the Mother can solely apply for a passport for the child for the purpose of international travelling.
5.   That the child may initiate contact with the respondent father should he wish to do so in the future.
6.   That the father may initiate contact with the child in the future should he wish with the provision that this is discussed within a mediation session and that any contact agreement be made with the childs best interests in mind and such agreements are made in the form of a contact order.

Worded as above, will this achieve my goals as stated above?
