Hi
I am a New Zealand lawyer based in Wellington and will help you with your question today. Please give me a minute to read the question

How far is the distance your son will need to travel? Unless this is in your local neighbourhood this is against the Covid 19 rules even for contact.

img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

Unless the father is in your bubble, then this contact should not occur-perhaps in Level 3 but not yet

Customer
no the father in hawks bay. but if i dont bring him back by 2moro hes coming to get him.
Customer
its 3hour drive to get to us
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

That would be against the rules. Your son has to stay where he is until the restrictions on travel are removed. Possibly Level 3 although that is still restricted. That drive is definitely against the rules. You should tell him this.

Customer
the father is an essential worker
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

Perhaps even more reason to postpone the return-contact the police if you think he will attempt this.

Customer
he wants him back. as school starts back tuesday
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

What is the usual arrangement?

Customer
ok. so from there, what are my steps to take. i want him here with me permanently. i can get him into a new school on tuesday. i can put a trespassing notice well thats all i can think of
Customer
arrangements we have come up with. not working out for both of us. hes been threating me, and i know if i dont do anything, im not gona see my boy.

You need to contact the police and explain that the father is intending to breach the travel restrictions. And if you intend changing the parenting you should consult a local lawyer to day to start the process of sorting the parenting arrangements and possibly getting an urgent order in place, because of this threat to breach the travel restrictions

Customer
ok local lawyer? any on here thats local?

Let me know if you need more help. It’s important to communicate with the father and explain he is breaking the rules but that you won’t let him put the child at risk
