Parenting Matter Resolved By Consent

Our solicitor represented a 28 year old male who had separated from his de facto partner and had the care of a daughter who was 18 months old.

The client attended our office to seek advice and representation as the mother had sought an urgent recovery order through the Family Court. Informal arrangements had been in place since separation but the father had concerns regarding the mother’s care.

It is usual in a matter where the child is this young for the court to make orders for an equal shared care arrangement, even when one party has been the primary carer.  The client in this matter was seeking an equal shared care arrangement on the proviso the mother sought treatment for mental health and drug related concerns.

After negotiations, the parties agreed to an arrangement where the father was permitted to spend six nights a fortnight with the child and the mother sought treatment for her mental health and drug issues. The parties both achieved their objectives and avoided the need for costly and lengthy court proceedings.
