Ensuring that the arrangements for Parenting your children after separation are frequently one of the most important Family Law issues that need to be addressed. So often described as custody and access, or contact and residence, but now described by the Family Law Act as “lives with” and “spends time with” are critical issues.

Whether arrangements are agreed upon and need to be formally recorded, or whether the arrangements are not agreed upon and need to be negotiated, or the issues need to be taken to Court, obtaining the right legal advice is vital.

Aylward Game Solicitors provide sensitive and practical advice for your situation and children.


Prenuptial agreements and Binding Financial Agreements

Binding Financial Agreement (BFA), often a pre-nuptial agreement, is becoming increasingly popular in Australia.

It is possible to sign these agreements for couples who are not legally married before, during and after the relationship and before and after marriage.

You may rely on Aylward Game Solicitors who have the experience and a sensitive approach to ensure you receive the advice you require.


Grandparents in Parenting Cases

The grandparents have a right to apply for Court Orders relating to the parenting of the grandchildren where the parents of such children are unsuitable for medical or other reasons to care for them.

The Courts can make orders for the grandparents to take on the parenting role of the children in such circumstances, or the Court can make Orders that regulate the role of a grandparent in a child’s life, such as providing for a child to spend time with a grandparent.

If a Court orders it, then normally, the time spent by the grandparents with their grandchildren would be a time that is not inconvenient to the children and the children’s parents. However, the Courts would also look at the disruption to any children’s activities, including sporting, educational and extra-curricular activities, to determine if the time spent with the grandparents is feasible.

The wishes of the children, especially those of teenage children, will be considered.

Other significant family members do not have the same rights as grandparents in seeking time with their nieces, nephews, and other family children. However, if other significant family members or even sometimes family friends have had a large involvement in the upbringing of the children and if the parents, grandparents, or other family members are not suitable to parent the children, then those family members or friends may apply to the Court for Orders relating to the parenting of the children.

When two people separate (after a very long relationship), financial issues can become problematic because there is stress involved with the separation itself and you have to start thinking about how to split these assets up & how to finalise things…

This can often become a complicated process, especially if there are a lot of assets or children involved.
The most important thing after a separation has taken place is to seek legal advice as early in the process as possible because the sooner you’re aware of your rights and obligations, the sooner you’re going to be able to take steps to formalise matters between you and your former partner.
