The number 1 Child Custody Lawyer Woodvale has to offer. As Child Custody Lawyers with many years of experience, we understand that children are particularly vulnerable to the impact of separation and divorce.
We offer sensitive, tailored support to resolve all your children’s and parenting issues. This is especially so where it involves child custody.
Whether you have been married or live together in a de facto relationship (including a same sex relationship), if there is a dispute about arrangements for your children we can help you achieve resolution.
The Family Law Act sets out some core objectives for children:
- Children have a right to know and be cared for by both parents;
- Children have a right to spend time and communicate regularly with both parents and other significant people such as grandparents;
- Parents should share duties and responsibilities in relation to their children; and
- Parents should agree about the future parenting of their children
A key concept is parental responsibility. Parental responsibility is about parents making decisions about major long-term issues affecting the children.
We will work with you to put in place the best possible arrangements for the long-term benefit of you and your children.
Parents’ arrangements cover matters such as where children will live, who children will communicate with and how children will be supported financially.
When an agreement has been reached we can help you and your children by making sure an agreement is properly recorded and recognised by the Court by filing an Application for Consent Orders.
In the event that no agreement is reached you may wish to ask the Court to make Orders governing the arrangements for your children.
Where required, we will represent you in court.
Our focus is to provide expert advice while handling children’s matters with sensitivity and care.
