Sydney Parenting & Children Lawyers

If you’re separating from your partner and have children, it’s important to consider their interests and protect their welfare. You and your partner might not agree on everything, but you probably agree that the wellbeing of your children comes first.

The legal system acknowledges that what is in the best interests of child will vary from one family to another. Parental rights and custody rights can ultimately be determined by the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia (FCFCOA or family court), but it can be simpler and cheaper for the parties to reach a settlement earlier.

There are a variety of ways for parents to reach agreement on childrens matters and our lawyers are skilled in handling a wide range of matters. We can assist with any issues from complex child recovery orders to formalising parenting plans and consent orders in amicable separations.

We work with our clients through their personal circumstances and issues to negotiate and formalise arrangements that suit their specific circumstances.

At PCL Lawyers Sydney, our parenting and children lawyers can advise you on your options, guide you through the process, and negotiate on your behalf to achieve a fair and equitable outcome.

Joint Parental Responsibility

Typically, parents have equal responsibility for their child. This means that major decisions regarding the child’s health and education will be shared by both parents.

Sensitive family law advice and robust representation

The family law team at PCL Lawyers can advise you and provide robust representation on matters related to parenting and children.

We can help you work out living and other arrangements such as:

  • Where each child is going to primarily live and with whom
  • How much time each child should spend with each parent
  • Financial responsibilities & decision making for expenses such as education, holidays, special family events;
  • Settle any disputes or other disagreements about children

In addition, we can represent parties in the family court. Whether you need to request more time, seek orders, or submit an urgent application in cases where a child might be in danger, we can assist you.

Our parenting and childrens lawyers in Sydney can provide clients with helpful advice on their legal rights and take steps to protect your legal position.

Our goal is to reach solutions as soon as possible without having to go to court. If and when you can’t reach an agreement that necessitates court action, we’ll guide you each step of the way. We’re known for our expertise, experience and empathy when dealing with clients while being determined and tough on the other party as required.
