When setting out arrangements for children, you and your former spouse have the option to obtain legally enforceable parenting orders, ideally by agreement or enter a less formal, more flexible parenting plan.
Following a divorce or separation, it can be difficult for parents to set aside emotions and make decisions on parenting arrangements that are in the best interests of their children.
When setting out arrangements for children, you and your former spouse have the option of obtaining legally enforceable parenting orders, ideally by agreement or entering a less formal, more flexible parenting plan.
In deciding which parenting arrangement option is most suitable for your situation, it can be helpful to obtain legal advice and assistance from an experienced family law specialist.
While most parents manage to work out a satisfactory arrangement for the care of their children with proper legal support, if there are issues and disputes between the parents, it is important that you understand your rights and obligations under the Family Law Act and the pathway the courts follow in determining any disputes concerning children’s matters.
The Family Court supports children having a meaningful relationship with both parents and others, but it is always subject to protecting children from violence and abuse and guided by the principle that the children’s own best interests are of paramount consideration.
At Corish and Co., we are devoted to ensuring the welfare of your children and protecting and preserving your children’s best interests in any parenting dispute. It is our commitment to help you obtain the best
possible results for the benefit of your children. We do this by providing clear advice and guidance from start to finish, assisting you in the early resolution of disputes and encouraging your participation in Family Dispute Resolution.
If you and your former spouse are unable to resolve your dispute through mediation, or family violence makes Family Dispute Resolution unsuitable, an Application to the Family Court of Australia may be necessary.
