Child Support & Child Custody
Reaching an an agreement with your former spouse over matters concerning your children can be particularly difficult. How do you sort out care arrangements? What about child support? What’s best for the kids?
As your child custody lawyers, our job is ensure you have a clear understanding of your legal obligations and rights in order to achieve an outcome that’s in the best interest of your children.
And what is best for your children? Here’s what the the Family Law Act 1975 says:
- Children have the right to be properly cared for and protected from psychological or physical harm, neglect, abuse or family violence.
- They have the right to a meaningful relationship with both parents in their lives.
These two points above are the primary considerations when determining a child’s care arrangements between two parents.
When it comes to financial support the Child Support Agency considers both parents’ incomes, the number of children and their current living arrangements. Again, our family lawyers will be there to help you make sure you’re fairly represented when it comes to child support and child custody.
