#parenting orders regarding whether the mother should have sole parental responsibility with regards to one child attending counselling, there were existing orders in place for the child to attend counselling and there is evidence that the father has inhibited this process.
Secondly the court was asked to consider whether the parties should be restrained from communicating with the children when they are living with the other parent as there was evidence that excessive communication is occurring.

#property orders, there were orders in place for the sale of the former matrimonial home and there was evidence that the husband was being obstructive, delayed and has been uncooperative with regards to the sale, the Court considered s.106A orders.
