Protecting & Providing for Your Children's Well-Being

In order to protect your children during the divorce process, it is important that all parties work together and follow the appropriate steps when considering what is best for your children and negotiating time sharing and visitation rights. In most cases, each parent still deserves dedicated time with their children. This time can be predetermined and later renegotiated as circumstances change. Formally deciding upon these terms in a legal setting protects not only your children, but also your rights as their parent.

Circumstances that are taken into account when determining the primary residence of your children include:

  • Financial and economic standing of each parent
  • Emotional stability of each household
  • Desires of the children
  • Ability of each parent to provide for the children
  • Physical location of each home, such as proximity to school
  • Employment and social schedules of each parent

At the end of the day, the court is looking for the situation that is in the best interest of the child. If a custody agreement does not take the needs of the child into consideration or circumstances change so that the child is not being benefitted, the court has the capacity to change the agreement as they see fit.

However, the court is not a member of your family. What the court considers to be in your family’s best interests is not always what will work the best for your family. In these instances, it helps to have the legal counsel of a Melbourne family law attorney that can help the court see your side.

While this was meant to prevent the court from employing policies aimed at favoring either parent, there may be inherent biases present when determining a custody and visitation arrangement.
