Children's Living Arrangements / Parenting Plans
Our lawyers understand that one of the hardest things to cope with following a separation is deciding on new parenting arrangements for your children.
At BBS Lawyers we are able to explain to you the significant legal concepts that relate to your children, including the presumption of equal shared parental responsibility, substantial and significant time spending arrangements, and equal shared care.
BBS Lawyers can help you work through the living arrangements you believe to be in the best interest of your children; including the time that your children spend with you, your former partner and others such as grandparents.
BBS Lawyers will help you address a range of issues that you may not have thought of. Some important things to consider in addition to where your children live and with whom they spend time include varying usual arrangements to accommodate holidays and special occasions, who is responsible for making the important decisions in their lives, whether there needs to be specific arrangements made for financial support such as school fees and child support.
We are experienced in dealing with situations involving the relocation of children (whether that be locally, interstate or overseas), parental alienation, domestic violence, mental health concerns, substance abuse issues and families that have children with special needs.
