Legal advice for child custody

When seeking child custody advice, it’s useful to know that in the Family Court, it is the children that have rights e.g. to have a meaningful relationship with both parents, while the parents have responsibilities such as to act in the best interest of the children.


The issue of children and Family Law is charged with emotion especially since you may need to co-parent with your ex-partner for many years to come. While many parents turn to the internet to source documents and read advice columns, this can often take away from being with the children in a time of need. By seeking child custody advice from an expert, you can get all your questions answered face to face, understand the full consequences of your various options and in turn, reduce the stress on you and your children, as well as reduce your legal costs in the long run.

While the Family Court prefers parents to co-parent their children with a “parenting plan”, this is not legally enforceable and you may need to seek child custody advice in relation to preparing a parenting order or a binding child support agreement to protect your rights and your children.
