Children’s issues and
When an agreement on a divorce has children involved, it is necessary to keep their best
interest in any decision making. Separation is an extremely difficult time for children and we
want to minimise the impact on them and keep their rights in mind, whether we are negotiating
custody, access, child support or visitation rights.
Separation is usually a stressful time for your children and they may react in different ways to
separation or divorce. How they react often depends on the child’s age, temperament and the
level of cooperation or conflict between the parents. Since every family is different, parenting
arrangements will be different from family to family. You and your former partner should try to
make arrangements that will work the best for your children. When making arrangements for
your children, you will need to take into account:
how they will spend time with each parent and other people (e.g. grandparents or
who will look after them after school and where will they spend holidays
any other things such as choice of school, health care, sport, or religious matters, and
how to ensure that the children continue to enjoy their culture.
If you and your former partner agree on the future arrangements for your children after
separation you do not have to go to court, you can:
make a parenting plan, or
obtain consent orders approved by a court.
Courts make orders about parental responsibilities only if the parents cannot agree about the
arrangements for their children, these are called parenting orders.
You should seek for legal advice in order to make an appropriate parenting arrangement and
find out the best approach for you. Contact KLH in the Hills District area.
