The Family Law Act
The Family Law Act is there to guide parties on what must be considered and how we determine the best interests of the child when considering future parenting arrangements.
Chief amongst the considerations include the benefit to the child having a meaningful relationship if
both of the child’s parents and the need to protect the child from physical or psychological harm.
At its core, most family law matters involving children are an argument over where a child should live and how much time, and in what manner, should the child spend with the other parent.
It is not simply a 50/50 arrangement once you separate as in many cases that is not in the child’s best interests.
There are many factors that come into account when considering parenting arrangements that can only be discussed in person with us as each case, most especially with kids, is unique. It is your children
and your family and what works for you may not work for others.
