What's Best for Your Child - Now, and in the Future?

The phrase “best interests of the child” is one you will often hear. It’s a well-meaning statement, but it can ring hollow, depending on the situation. This is especially the case if you face the added pressure and complexity of dealing with an uncooperative partner, or someone suffering from mental health issues such as depression or narcissism or battling with drug or alcohol addiction.

The Children


Litigation essentially means taking the matter to court and making your case in front of a judicial officer, like a Magistrate or Judge, who will then decide the final outcome. Litigation is highly process-driven, and often complicated, but it is indeed final.

In terms of family law specifically, litigation becomes even more challenging: Lengthy delays are not uncommon. Proceedings can be expensive and emotionally draining. The family court process is equal parts rigid and confusing to navigate.

While there are various services and resources devoted to helping people to represent themselves, you should always seek legal counsel – whether it is to inform or represent you.


The impact of parental separation on children is well-documented. The negative effects can be both deeply traumatic and far-reaching, affecting their development well into adulthood.

In times of high stress and anxiety, this impact can be incredibly difficult to grasp, often because the insight required to put the children first may be clouded by fear, panic or mental health issues.

The right experience, advice and counsel can make an enormous difference when negotiating and mapping out child custody arrangements. It can assist your child’s emotional, psychological and physical wellbeing over their journey through to adulthood.

If you are thinking of relocating with your children interstate or overseas after a relationship breakdown, specialist legal advice is essential.


Sorting through these situations is not straight-forward. It requires the balancing of your needs against the needs of the children, and their right to have a meaningful relationship with the other parent.
