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.
Children suffer when they feel they are:
- Are forced to choose between 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 Winthrop – we care about the best outcome for your child.
Winthrop 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.
Winthrop Divorce Lawyer
In Australia the only ground for divorce that is required is that a marriage has been irretrievable broken down, that has been proven by 12 months of separations. This requirement has been in place since 1976.
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.
If you are getting divorced, you have 12 months from the date your divorce order becomes final to apply for property settlement or spousal maintenance. If you don’t apply within this time frame, you may need to get permission from the court to do so, which can be difficult and time-consuming.
A good way to ensure that your documents are in the right place at the right time is to consult a lawyer.
Finding the best solutions for your child
Some clients want to maintain a good relationship with the other adults for the sake of the children and are willing to work hard at this, others want as little to do with the other adults as possible. Either way, we can help you develop a plan that will work for you and your family.
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.
Make sure you review your life insurance beneficiary’s and write a new Will when separating or divorcing.
