             (2)  Subsection (1) does not apply if the Minister has been provided with court documents demonstrating that there are proceedings before a Commonwealth, State or Territory court that may affect:

                     (a)  the rights of the child to travel internationally; or

                     (b)  who has parental responsibility for the child.

                     (h)  if the child is outside Australia—there is evidence of family violence;

                      (i)  an order of a court in a country that, under the Family Law (Child Abduction Convention) Regulations 1986, is a convention country, permits the child to travel internationally;

                      (j)  in the case of a child who is outside Australia—the Minister considers that there is a need for the child to travel internationally;
