When people separate, one of the key arrangements they need to agree on is the ongoing care of the children and the contact the children have with each parent. Family Lawyer Shaun Cousins is holding a free webinar to discuss what options are available to people to resolve and formalise arrangements for children once separation occurs.

The goal is to provide information and an overview about the options available to parents before, during and after Court proceedings occur, including:

  • What options to parents have to resolve disputes and formalise arrangements outside of Court?
  • How effective are verbal and informally written agreements and how can these be strengthened?
  • What options are available to parents if the relationship ends in violence?
  • Safety issues for children in the care of a parent and how these can be managed;
  • What is Family Dispute Resolution and how can this help me?
  • What is the process of going to and navigating Court if Family Dispute Resolution is unsuccessful?
  • What does the Court need to consider when a Parenting Order is made?
  • When does a Parenting Order need to be varied and how is this done?

There will also be a forum to answer any questions you might have about these issues and how you can ensure the child(ren)’s best interests and welfare are met after a separation.

When:             Tuesday, 12 May 2020
Time:              12.15 pm - 1.15 pm
Where:            From anywhere with an internet connection or phone line.
