Services > Children and Parenting

We aim to make the process much easier for you; giving you time and energy to spend on all the other things still going on in day-to-day life.

We pride ourselves on being lawyers that listen.

Often, you may feel that your voice is not heard. Come and talk to us, and we will provide you with a clear roadmap, designed to look after the immediate legal issues that arise on separation; achieve amicable outcomes with your spouse or partner; and show what to do if things are just too difficult.

Your children are your priority

In Australian family law, when dealing with children’s matters, you will regularly hear the phrase “best interests of the children”.

Let’s talk about their best interests and how to achieve a great outcome for them and for you.

Protecting your time with the children

We will give you clear and simple advice on how to agree the best arrangements for your children.

We can help you with a parenting agreement or parenting orders. They should set out the important things, such as:

  • where the children will live;

  • when they will spend time with you and when will they spend time with your former spouse or partner;

  • what to do about holidays and special occasions (Christmas, for example);

  • arrangements for conflict-free changeovers; and

  • who makes decisions for the children.

What if you don’t agree?

Going to court is always a last resort. It is costly and emotionally draining.

It’s best to try to reach agreement without going to court, but we know that’s not always possible. Maybe you have already tried and there are no other options left? Or maybe there’s been violence, threats to remove the children or intimidation, and you don’t know what to do?

At this time, you need advocacy, guidance, and an experienced legal team working with you. We will help you put the power back in your hands and provide you with all the information you need.

We will be there to fight for the best solution for you and your children.
