Joint Child Custody

When it comes to child custody agreements, Parents may agree to ‘share the care’ and prefer children to live jointly with them and their former partner after separation.

IS Joint Child Custody realistic?

Yes absolutely, in cases where you are being alienated or denied access from your children, and you would you like to have either equal time or at least equally shared parental responsibility, we can help you. Equal shared care is the preferred method of the Family Court in most circumstances, and is something we can help you achieve.

HOW THE COURTS DETERMINE EQUAL CHILD CUSTODY

The Family Court will consider these factors to consider whether ‘equal time’ is ‘reasonable’ and ‘practical’.

  1. How close are the parents homes to each other?
  2. What are the working hours of each parent?
  3. What is the relationship between the children and each parent?
  4. Are the children old enough to cope with a changing schedule?

How can we help you achieve joint child custody?

Our aim is to keep your family matter out of court and help you negotiate an agreement or order that works for you and your children.
