Whatever this may look like in your particular circumstances
Our team will vigorously fight to ensure you have a continuing relationship with your children and to prevent them from being exposed to harm. JB Solicitors has extensive experience preparing parenting order applications and representing parents seeking to enforce parenting orders.
Parenting orders are made by either the Family Court of Australia or the Federal Circuit Court of Australia. As the name suggests, they deal with the circumstances around the parenting of a child. Parenting orders are typically made following divorce or separation, but may also be made in other cases and other times.
If you are concerned about the well-being and development of your child, you can apply for a parenting order.
Who may apply for parenting orders?

1. Contact JB Solicitors to discuss what actions you make take.
2. Apply to the Department of Human Services to change your child support assessment to account for exceptional circumstances, for example:
The terms full custody and sole custody can be used interchangeably. Full custody of a child refers to the situation where one parent has the power to make all the decisions regarding their child or children, including decisions regarding their care, welfare and living arrangements.
Despite this, parents will sometimes come to agreements where one parent will have ‘full’ or ‘sole’ custody of a child. In such an instance, the parents can write this agreement either in a consent order submitted to the Court that is legally binding or on an informal basis, such as a parenting plan. It is important to note that the legal option does not terminate the rights of another parent who does not have full custody, and this parent may apply at a later time to vary the order.
If the other parent objects to this, the situation typically becomes more complicated, and parents must attempt to agree with the aid of a mediator at a Family Dispute Resolution Conference.
If an agreement cannot be made in mediation, the matter will need to proceed to the Family Court to make a binding decision on how the child should be parented.
