Following the separation of parents, some children will require certainty in regard to their living arrangements.

There are many ways for parents or guardians to record their agreement in respect of the children, some parents need only rely on a verbal arrangement, however others may require a written agreement, either binding the parents privately or via a sealed court order.

We can assist with all aspects of negotiating, preparing and enforcing parental agreements, including litigation through the Family Court.
