Marriage and family relationship breakdown is difficult for everyone, especially for children. Just when they need their parents the most to be able to make good decisions for their future, anger and escalated relationship conflict between the parents can get in the way.

In some cases communication between parents breaks down completely, meaning parents are just unable to put into place the type of child custody arrangements for their children that they need or preventing one parent from seeing the children at all.

If you feel worried about safety, intimidated, or feel that you cannot make decisions equally with your former partner you can get help. Where safety is a concern or where there are allegations of family violence we recommend that you seek legal advice.

At Matthews Folbigg our experienced team of family lawyers is able to help you.

Sometimes the best place to start is to seek some assistance of the Court. At Matthews Folbigg Lawyers we have found that having some child custody Interim Orders in place about the children will assist to help both children and parents. The children are helped because they know when they will definitely be able to spend time with the other parent. The parents are helped because it can reduce the stress of having ongoing negotiations with the other parent about the children which may result in further disagreement and escalated conflict.
