Tips on how to best protect children in a family law case.

22nd Jul 2013

When a relationship or marriage breaks down, there is always going to be a certain amount of emotion. But when there are children involved, there is so much more to consider. The upheaval of their parents splitting up and going their separate ways can be devastating to some kids, particularly if they have to move house or even school as a result of the situation.

As a parent, your children are your number one priority, so it is essential you make the break up as easy and simple as you possibly can. If your children are old enough to understand what is going on, then it might be best that you explain what is going on.  Children can react in many different ways, but the most important thing is to remind them that both parents love them very much and the marriage break up has nothing to do with them.

Hiring a lawyer who specialises in family law, can help settle any disputes you and your ex-partner might have. If there are assets that need to be divided up, a lawyer can open up the channel of communication and begin negotiations. Custody or care arrangements for the children will also need to be agreed. This can be particularly stressful for all parties involved.

A Queensland law firm, such as Rostron Carlyle, will aim to keep family cases out of court, to help protect the children and create a stable home life for them as quickly as possible. However, if negotiations break down and court is inevitable, Rostron Carlyle has a huge team of experienced lawyers who understand the importance of finding fast and agreeable solutions to the breakdown of your marriage.

Legal jargon or even the word “court” can be scary for children and their parents. Rostron Carlyle’s family law solicitors understand this, which is why they are happy to explain each and every stage, so you know exactly what is going on. If you want to protect your children and maintain a healthy home life, then make sure you find a trustworthy and experienced family lawyer who can see you through your divorce.
