A sad child during a family law proceedingDid you know that the average wait times for Family Law proceedings has now blown out to between 3 to 6 years?

Also, did you know that all Court Orders about children are based on what is in the best interests of those children?

When a Judge has to consider what is in the best interests of children they have to consider a long list of criteria set out in the Family Law Act. Parents don’t have rights under the Family Law Act, but children do. The Court considers the rights of those children to be the paramount consideration when making any Court Order.

With such a long wait ahead of you and your children, it may be a good idea to start a conversation with your Family Law professional now.
