We want to ensure that your children have the greatest possible future, and we will fight tirelessly to get the best possible conclusion in your case.
Child Maintenance & Spousal Maintenance
Child maintenance is money paid by one parent to the other in order for the child to be financially supported. If the divorced spouse cannot agree on an amount amicably, it might be resolved in court instead. A family lawyer may defend you and your children to guarantee the best possible outcome.
Aside from child support, a separated spouse may be entitled to financial help to maintain their standard of living. Spousal maintenance, often known as spousal support or alimony, refers to financial assistance provided by divorced spouses once the divorce is finalised.
Custody (Child Arrangements Order)
A child arrangements order is a sort of court order that specifies how duties for your children are allocated between you and your ex after your relationship has ended. This might include information like where they reside, how frequently they visit each parent, and other types of communication like phone calls and video conversations.
To get a child arrangement order, you must file an application with the court and attend a child arrangements order hearing.
The family court judge will decide what is best for the children at your child arrangement order hearing. This judgement is legally binding and applies to both parents unless it is altered or revoked by another application.
