Child-Related Matters

Being able to reach an agreement on the variety of child-related issues confronting a client following a relationship breakdown is often very difficult. Jones Leach Lawyers offers professional advice based on many years of experience dealing with such situations. Although no two cases are the same it is important that the solicitor you choose can offer the depth of knowledge and experience required in this sensitive area of the law.


How can we help?

Our involvement can be to a greater or lesser extent. Sometimes we are needed only to document an agreement that has been reached.

 

If you have reached an agreement regarding proposed living arrangements, we can assist by:

  • Documenting the arrangements either in the form of:   
    • A parenting plan;  or
    • Consent Orders
      so they can be relied upon by you
  • Advising you regarding the proposed arrangements, particularly in respect of any possible omissions/matters not yet taken into account
  • Advising you generally regarding your rights and those of your child/ren.


If living arrangements have not been agreed upon, we can assist by:

  • Advising you about your rights
  • Advising you about the rights of your children and of the other party
  • Negotiating acceptable arrangements with the other party or their representative either:
    • By correspondence; or 
    • If necessary, at a round-table conference.

 

If living arrangements are then agreed upon acceptably to you, we can assist by:

  • Documenting the arrangements either in the form of:
    • A parenting plan; or
    • Consent Orders
      so they can be relied upon by you.


If no resolution can be achieved, we can assist you by:

  • Advising you about the steps available to you to move the matter forward and the likely costs
  • If instructed, arranging for the compulsory conference (if it has not already been held)
  • If instructed, issuing Court proceedings and conducting them on your behalf including by going to a hearing, if necessary.
