Interesting New Form

Please see the attached.

'Affidavit - Non-Filing of Family Dispute Resolution Certificate'

Appears to be a more efficient Form 4

I had a look through the Form 4 in my state and was surprised how complex it was compared to the one within the attachment. The new one is much more straightforward.

Why has it been called: 'Affidavit - Non-Filing of Family Dispute Resolution Certificate'?

I also noticed the new form does not carry space for children's lawyer. Is there a reason why?

I may be a bit behind but I won't learn if I don't ask.

As good a name as any - and explanatory - no PDR certificate.

It's an urgent application, not for a case in progress - so an ICL would not have been appointed.

Must be good I thought it was an new official format that was being simplified.

Heaps easier to understand though
Hmm, this is good for us. We have a case in play and we did find signs of abuse and reported them in an affidavit. Unfortunately, we did not complete a form 4 at the time. Perhaps now, the information in the affidavit will carry more weight. I believe it was either not read or disregarded as it didn't stand out - not being a form 4.

Because you are swearing/affirming that there is "violence" and you need to jump the Queue of FRC Rule and seek an interim order.
