Parenting Orders

Under Australian law, The Family Court issues orders that govern arrangements made for children in the aftermath of divorce between the parents. Top family lawyers will explain that the primary objective of parenting orders is to ensure the welfare and well being of the child.

An individual is considered a child until the age of 18. Parenting orders usually involve equal share parenting directives whereby each parent will have an equal say in major issues impacting the child. Parenting orders are in place to ensure that parenting does not get adversely affected due to separation or divorce.

The issues covered in parenting orders could include:

  • The parent who the child will live with
  • Education and health
  • Visiting hours and how much time the child will spend with each parent
  • Mode of communication between the child and the parent that the child will not live with
  • Allocation of other parental responsibilities (for example, picking and dropping of children from school and so on)
