Recovery order

Recovery orders are court orders made under s67 of the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth). A recovery order (defined in s67Q) may authorise and direct the police to find and recover a child and return him or her to the care of a parent, a person with parental responsibility or a person with a parenting order in their favour (certain types of parenting orders only). The family law policy sets out the tests which need to be satisfied for legal aid to be granted to an applicant seeking a location order.
