She is considering an undertaking, but it needs to be sold to her. In other words, she needs to realise the VRO is sh!t for her too. One thing I don't think she has realised (and I didn't) is that I don't think we are allowed to talk to each other. In the VRO it states "you may communicate with the person protected by email, SMS, text message or by any other written electronic means solely to make arrangements with the children.

She wants to be able to call me in an emergency and vice versa, she started work at the company I work with last week as well and whilst it's unlikely we will need to communicate re work matters, it's still a possibility. As far as I can see there is no provision in the VRO for that. Which is good, because she doesn't want that.

Just remember that there can't be any coercion to drop the FVRO for an undertaking..

Sounds like what she actually wants is just some conditions that you are bound by regarding behavior rather than communication... If she ultimately rejects an undertaking, perhaps a FVRO that sets out some limitations on specific behavior & or you going to her home uninvited..



Any opinion given should not be accepted as legal advice.

Please post your legal questions in a forum rather than sending a PM. Thanks

She has spoken to her lawyer who has advised her against an undertaking and is instead saying a "compromise" would be a conduct order agreement. From what I've read, it's no different to a VRO.
