Negotiating child custody arrangements can be a highly emotional and stressful experience. Our starting point will always be what is in the child’s best interests. 

Whether you are going through a divorce or separation, or are  seeking to modify existing parenting arrangements, Movement Legal is here to provide guidance and support to ensure the best outcome for you and your children.

Steps to Achieve a Legally Enforceable Custody Arrangement

For separated parents, establishing a legally binding and child-centred custody arrangement is essential. 

Follow these straightforward steps to get started:

Before going to court, both parties in a divorce must participate in Family Dispute Resolution (FDR). This approach allows for the discussion and negotiation of parenting and child care arrangements, with the goal of reaching mutually acceptable solutions.

If you successfully establish an agreement during the conference regarding your parenting plans and child care arrangements, you can proceed to formalise this agreement through either an informal parenting plan or a formally court-ordered consent order.

If an agreement cannot be reached, you can file for a parental order. This court-issued legal directive describes how children should be cared for following a separation or divorce.

When a court issues a parenting order, all parties involved are legally bound to follow its provisions.

It is vital to understand the legal distinctions: a parenting plan is not a court order, but both consent orders and parenting orders come under the jurisdiction of the court. As a result, if one party fails to meet the agreed-upon obligations, the other parent may seek legal redress.

How Child Custody Lawyers Can Assist

In cases involving child custody, it is critical to prioritise the children’s care and best interests. This is when a child custody lawyer’s particular expertise comes in handy. 

These legal specialists are well-prepared to assist parents in negotiating the complicated and emotionally landscape with regard to the Family Law Act.

Child custody lawyers offer invaluable guidance to determine and prioritise the best interests of the children involved. Our role involves fostering shared parental responsibility and drafting comprehensive agreements that benefit all parties.

Providing a nurturing and stable environment for children is crucial. The ultimate objective is to ensure that children thrive in this environment, irrespective of any changes in their family dynamics.
