Children and Parenting

We’d love to hear from you…

Achieve a parenting solution that is in the best interest of your children with the help of your Aubrey Brown Family Law specialist

If you have separated or divorced and there are children involved, their welfare is the number one priority for everyone, including the court.

Separating parents can often reach mutual agreement about the future living arrangements and upbringing of their children. This is always the most ideal solution. However, knowing where you stand before entering into any negotiation is critical.

Your Aubrey Brown Family Lawyer will ensure you are fully prepared before entering into a negotiation about future parenting arrangements with your former spouse or partner, so it’s best to seek advice as early as possible. Your Family Lawyer will also arrange structured lawyer assisted mediation if an amicable and appropriate parenting solution can’t be reached through negotiation.

What if I have to go to court to fight for custody of my children?

Going to court over Parenting arrangements for children is not a situation anyone aims for, but there are times when it can’t be avoided.

The Family Law Act relating to matters involving children demands that two primary considerations must be taken into account by the court:

  1. The benefit to the child in having a meaningful relationship with both parents.
  2. The need to protect a child from physical or psychological harm and/or exposure to neglect, abuse or violence.

At Aubrey Brown Lawyers, we work hard to help you avoid the emotional turmoil and confusion associated with appearing before the court. However, if going to court is necessary, rest assured we will guide and represent you in a way that assists the best possible outcome for you and your children.

With offices in Erina and Tuggerah, we are readily accessible for families living in all parts of the Central Coast. For help with parenting and children matters, contact our friendly, caring and professional Family Law team at Aubrey Brown Lawyers today.
