Children and Family Law

Under Australian family law, children have a right to enjoy a meaningful relationship with both their parents, and to be protected from harm. A court is required to give greater weight to the consideration of the need to protect children from harm.

The Family Law Act 1975 is gender-neutral, and does not make assumptions about parenting roles.

When a family court is making a decision about a child, the court will make an order that is in the best interests of the child.


We value you and will approach your problem with sensitivity, empathy and care.

  • Property Settlement Court Orders
  • Children Consent Court Orders
  • De Facto Relationships Court Orders
