Child Custody Law

At North Law, our lawyers are extremely mindful of the delicate and emotional nature of parenting issues and decisions which need to be made upon separation for children. Our high degree of expertise in children’s matters, and our familiarity with the requirements of the Court, allows us to act swiftly and effectively to ensure parenting issues can be resolved in a timely fashion consistent with the best interests of your child or children.

Australian law focuses on the rights of children to have an ongoing relationship with both parents so that separating from your partner or spouse doesn’t mean that you are separating from your child or children. Although the terms ‘custody’, ‘residence’, ‘contact’ and ‘access’ are no longer used much by lawyers today, the issues behind the jargon are still on the top of the list of concerns for separating couples, namely:

  • Who will the child or children live with?
  • How will they spend time with the other parent?
  • How will both parents be kept in the loop in regard to important decisions such as education and health?

Our North Law lawyers are experienced in this often complex and emotional process. We can advise you in regard to the complexities of your specific situation as well as guide you through what can be a stressful and confusing process. We can help take the heat out of a difficult emotional situation and negotiate on your behalf to obtain the best possible results for your children. And if you matter does come to court, we are deeply familiar with the court system and can use our experience to your advantage.
