Children and parenting arrangements
When a couple with children separate or divorce the future arrangements for the children need to be resolved.
Most families do not know what to do in this situation so it essential to get legal advice regarding the ongoing care of the children and financial support as early in the process as possible.
The team at Dandenong Family Lawyers are experts in working through the issues associated with child support, adult child maintenance and children’s living arrangements.
People often ask us about guardianship and custody. In Australia, these are known as parental responsibility orders and live with orders. We can help you sort through the additional issues that come with any new family arrangements, including organising arrangements for children to spend time with other family members (such as grandparents).
With our extensive experience in the field we also recognise that child arrangements are never final. If you have a change in circumstances our team can advise you on any new particulars.
Dandenong Family Lawyers ensure that you take into consideration all the factors for your child support and child arrangements. The financial care of children does not necessarily end at 18. With many children studying and living at home for longer, we will work with all parties to ensure young adults (students or young people living with a disability) are provided for in an adequate manner.
