Child Custody in New South Wales (NSW)

In NSW, child custody matters are governed by the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth), which prioritizes the best interests of the child as the paramount consideration. The key aspects of child custody in NSW include:

  1. Parental responsibility: Both parents have equal shared parental responsibility for major long-term decisions affecting their children, unless the court orders otherwise.
  2. Living arrangements: The court can make orders regarding the child’s living arrangements, including where the child will primarily reside and the time they will spend with each parent.
  3. Best interests of the child: The court considers various factors to determine what is in the child’s best interests, such as the child’s views, the relationship with each parent, the ability of each parent to provide for the child’s needs, and any history of family violence or abuse.
  4. Parenting plans: Parents can enter into parenting plans, which are written agreements outlining the arrangements for their children, including decision-making responsibilities and living arrangements.
  5. Court orders: If parents cannot reach an agreement, the court can make orders regarding parental responsibility, living arrangements, and other aspects of child custody.

It’s crucial to seek legal advice and representation from experienced family lawyers to navigate child custody matters effectively and ensure the best possible outcome for the children involved.
