At HHG Legal Group, our lawyers understand that separation and child related matters can be very hard on all parties involved. We are able to provide you with compassionate and thoughtful advice on all aspects of the law as it relates to arrangements for children following the breakdown of a marriage or de facto relationship.
It is not only parents who can bring an Application for child related Orders before the Court. The Family Law Act makes provision for any person who has an interest in the care, welfare and development of a child to seek Orders from the Court. This commonly includes grandparents, step-parents and legal guardians.
In any child related matter, the overarching consideration for the Family Court is making Orders that are in the best interests of the child. These considerations are not limited solely to which parent a child will live with, but may also include what school the child will attend, how often they spend time with the other party and care arrangements on special occasions such as birthdays, Christmas and Easter.
Our Family Law team can provide you with tailored advice to ensure you achieve the best possible outcome for your child or children following a separation.
