Protect your child rights and safeguard their future

Child custody legal practice in Australia refers to the laws dealing with child arrangements, guardianships, and a legal relationship between a parent or guardian and a child in that person's care.

The legal battle to gain child custody and guardianship is long, tiresome and involves decision-making rights about the child's best interests, care, and safety.

As per the Australian laws on child custody and child arrangements, married parents ordinarily have the joint legal and physical custody of their children. The issue arises when the status of their relationship changes, or if the care provided by one of the parents is not up to the legal standard.

Legal court proceedings such as divorce, annulment, separation, adoption or parental death invoke the issue of the rights and decisions about the child custody and arrangements.

As in most jurisdictions in the world, best interests and well-being of the child determine the child custody and arrangement.
