Parenting Arrangements

Parenting Orders – what you need to know | Family Law

  1. Proposed consent parenting orders must be drafted as precise orders that are capable of being made as orders of the Family Court.  It is all too common for parties to attempt to draft their proposed parenting orders as a statement of agreements reached between themselves.
  2. The Family Court Registry will return your proposed consent parenting orders where you have a statement of agreements.
  3. Everyone’s parenting arrangements are different, therefore your plan or orders must be tailored specifically to what is in the ‘best interests’ of your children.
  4. Your parenting orders need to be flexible enough that they consider the changing needs of your children as they develop through their younger years to their teenage years.  Orders that are suitable for today, may not be suitable in 5 or 10 years time.
  5. Be careful of DIY Kits!  They seem cheap, but remember they are computer generated and not tailored specifically to the needs of your children.
  6. The Legal Drafter specialises in drafting parenting orders.  We can assist you to draft orders specifically to your family’s situation so that it complies with the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth).
