Child Custody

The basics of child custody

If parents can’t agree on where the children should be living, the court will make a decision about where the children should live. For the court to make this decision, they’ll look at the relevant factors in the Family Law Act to make this decision.

 

All child custody decisions are focused on ensuring the best interests of the child are made. Generally speaking, it’s often in the child’s best interests to have a  loving relationship with both parents, but arranging such relationships can be the main challenge in resolving a child custody dispute.

 

Child custody is often one of the most difficult issues a person may face in their lives. Justice Family Lawyers assures you that your appointed solicitor will be working closely with you on your case, you’ll be able to get the best child custody agreement for you and your children.

 

Research has shown that children in separated families are able to have full loving relationships with both parents and if both parents have a positive outlook and do not involve the children in the dispute.
