Parenting (Child Custody)
When two parents separate, it can dramatically impact a child’s life and the best interests of the child are considered in child custody.
Mediation is compulsory in family law matters and often required in property settlement matters.
Binding financial agreements are complex family law documents that essentially override the Family Law Act.
Divorce applications can be made 12 months after separation. They can be made by one party or jointly.
You don’t necessarily need a divorce lawyer at each court event, however, in most cases, it is a good idea.
To formalise parenting or financial arrangments parties will usually enter into a consent order.
Child Recovery Order
Child recovery orders can be made by the Family Law Court whether or not existing court orders are in place regarding custody.
There are many pros and cons of prenuptial agreements, and they can be costly if not done right.
Paternity (DNA) Testing
Failure to obtain a DNA test can result in someone paying child support when they are not the biological father of the child.
