Following a relationship breakdown, one of the most difficult issues for parents to deal with can be the parenting arrangements for their children. These arrangements include where the children will live, who will have responsibility for the children and when each parent will spend time with the child. The key consideration in all of these areas is what is in the best interests of the child.
At Uther Webster & Evans, our experienced Family Lawyers will assist you to negotiate parenting arrangements that put the interests of your children at the forefront. We understand that this can be an emotional and traumatic area, and we will provide you with advice and assistance at each step of the way.
Parenting arrangements are often agreed between the parties and, depending on your situation, we will provide you with advice as to whether these arrangements should be formalised by way of Court Orders or a Parenting Plan. In the event that an agreement cannot be reached, and Court proceedings are required to be commenced to resolve the dispute between you and your partner, our Lawyers have extensive litigation experience and knowledge of the relevant Court process and are able to represent you in order to achieve the best possible outcome for you, while again considering the best interests of your children.
