An Insight into Child Custody

A child-custody agreement means a judgment or a court order which grants legal custody, physical custody or visitation rights with respect to a child. A custodial parent is a parent who is given physical or legal custody of a child by court order. A custody case in court is usually carried out to determine the custody of children following a divorce.

Some couples have a mutual agreement on future parenting decisions and require only the necessary documentation from their respective lawyers. However, when it’s not possible to reach an agreement, you can get in touch with good child custody lawyers in Adelaide for any matter related to children’s affairs.

Child Custody and Law:

The basic facts underlying the principles of the Family Law Act state that:

  • Children have the right to be properly cared for and protected from any kind of harm, and
  • Parents hold the responsibility of taking care of their children.

When determining child custody arrangements, the Family Law Act states that the best interests of the child should be the primary consideration.

What is the Responsibility of Shared Parenting?

Children are considered to be the shared responsibility of their parents. Therefore, it is important to consult with each other regarding all issues and reach a joint decision in the best interests of the children.

What happens if the court makes an order for shared parenting responsibilities?
