I found this story about the making of the series. Freeman and Mailman go bush Issue 95 By Erin McWhirter, TV Writer NATIONAL, Jan 19, 2005: It takes a lot to make Olympic gold medallist Catherine Freeman cry. Throughout her life the sports star has been through the devastation of losing big races and other personal dramas, but she rarely cries. However, a recent road trip with actress and pal Deborah Mailman changed all that. In an instant, the city slickers who spent seven weeks travelling...

And this means that the other parent "complies" with the court order? Just becasue the court says the father has rights to see the child doesn't mean the mother complies no more then when the court orders the father to pay child support that he complies. And it can get expensive taking someone to court all the time to fight for you rights. Any why is that?

_________________________________________________________________________ Often this may be the case when there has been a long marriage and an agreement for the wife to be a stay at home mom, etc., the court takes into consideration the number of years the wife could have been either educating herself and/or working, but instead stayed at home and maintained the household and raised the children while the husband worked and establish an avenue of independent livelihood outside the home.
