Supportive Child Custody Attorney
Best Mediative Child Custody Attorneys in Sydney
When a couple is breaking up there is a lot of feelings and often a lot of hurtful things that are said, or perhaps there is nothing said at all. Children are often caught in the middle of this. In a divorce or separation, it can be easy to get caught up in all the processes and procedures that are already going on, but these decisions should not be rushed when thinking about your child. These decisions as well as the discussions around them can affect your child or children for the rest of their life.
Our child custody attorneys are well trained, qualified, and experienced in dealing with all matters of regarding separation, parenting and custody. Over 15 years (and counting) of family law practice, we’ve dealt with all different types of couples and families. As a result, our child custody attorneys are understanding and compassionate. And we know how to handle yours with the best of care. While also being able to get you the results you want.
We are also trained mediators and negotiators, and we can help you resolve your disputes by helping you and your partner facilitate calm-headed discussion. We’ll work to help you respectfully and civilly as resolve matters so your child can be properly taken care of. And everyone in the family can have a fresh start.
If you do end up needing to go through litigation, our custody attorneys are time tested in the courtroom. We’ll represent you to get the outcome you seek.
The courts look at multiple factors to decide who will get custody (or how custody is shared) in considering what is in the best interest of the child.
- the views of the child
- the contributions and nature of the relationship between the parents and other family members
- each partner’s willingness to encourage the child’s bond with the other parent
- capacity to provide
The courts usually prefer that both parents are meaningfully involved in the child’s life. However, this usually changes when domestic or family violence is involved (for the protection of the child and other parent.) Or if a parent cannot prove their ability or interest to be involved.
How can we help?
Having the right custody attorney that can maturely and sensitively handle your case, can mean all the difference in your situation. We have time proven experience, getting the results that our clients want. Our family law lawyers have helped protect children from physically abusive parents, and attainted custody for international residents.
What is a parenting plan, and do I need one?
The Australian family court law is structured in a way to encourage the peaceful resolution of parenting contributions, so the child can receive the benefit of two parents. Therefore it’s common to make a parenting plan to establish mutually agreed upon arrangements in writing.
Parenting plans are performed with lawyers without going through the court. Our child custody attorneys have a lot of experience in this endeavour. We are dedicated to helping you understand your rights, and what you can ask for, as well as helping you and your partner facilitate a beneficial bond with your child.
We provide family law legal advice across all areas of family law and are specialised in child support, divorce and separation, spousal maintenance, property settlements, parenting disputes, domestic violence, same-sex couples and de facto relationships.
