Marriage Breakdown: Child Support

If your marriage is breaking down, or already has broken down then you need to start thinking about the best outcome for your children.

Experience tells us that children suffer when they feel they are:

  • asked to choose between their parents
  • responsible for the conflict in the family
  • the ones who are caring for a family member who is not coping with the separation

If you have already decided to divorce or end your relationship then you will need to start thinking about how this will affect your children and what is best for children take comfort in:

  • being shown that they are loved
  • not being involved in adult drama
  • having clear, age-appropriate information about what is happening and when
  • being able to be a kid
  • feeling safe to talk about the other parent or family positively.

Family Lawyer Joondalup – we care about the best outcome for your child.

Joondalup Child Arrangement Lawyers

Making arrangements for your children can be a difficult and daunting task, especially if you are not on good terms with your former partner. Our team of experienced family lawyers can help you navigate this process and ensure that the best interests of your children are taken into account.

Decisions made regarding the degree of parental responsibility taken and a child’s living situation are some of the most important decisions parents and carers make.

The way adults behave towards the children, and each other, has an enormous impact on children’s lives and at the same time, shapes their relationships in the future.

If you are making decisions for children or supporting someone who is, ask yourself:

  • What will their lives be like as a consequence of this decision?
  • What will the children think of my behaviour when they are adults?
  • Am I making this decision for them, for me, or for someone else?

Some children feel that they have no voice in decisions made about them. It is important to remember that children are people too, with their own thoughts and feelings. Try to involve them in the decision-making process as much as possible, and explain things to them in an age-appropriate way.

Joondalup Divorce Lawyer

Since 1976, the only ground for divorce in Australia is that the marriage has irretrievably broken down, as proven by 12 months’ separation.

Courts do not require evidence of the reasons for the breakdown of the marriage.

In Western Australia, divorce applications and settlements are usually determined separately from any other application about children or financial issues.

For property settlements or spousal maintenance documents to be valid the divorced people have to apply within 12 months.

As you have a time limit it is best to consult a lawyer to help ensure all your documents are in place at the right time.

Finding the best solutions for your child

We help our clients identify the kind of relationship they want with the children and with the other adults in the family, reality test the proposals and develop rules of engagement between the adults for communicating and making decisions about children.

We take care to educate ourselves and our clients about modern parenting techniques and child development and will refer to our child specialist colleagues if a family needs therapeutic guidance, rather than a legal intervention.

If you are separating then redoing your Will is paramount.

We have had situations where the separated partner receives all the assets and life insurance from the unexpected death of their ex-partner.

This is not what the deceased partner and their family would have wanted.

Ensure you review your Will and life insurance beneficiary’s when separating or divorcing.
