Child Disputes

In any separation when children are involved, it is extremely important to get expert advice from specialists as soon as possible. At Hartley Healy, we do not take an aggressive or litigious approach when resolving matters with your ex-partner concerning your children.

It is our belief that it is very important for you to be able to work out an arrangement amicably with your ex-partner and move on with a Parenting Plan or Parenting Order that can be agreed by both of you. This co-operation and agreement will provide a better environment for the future of your children than one that can be achieved by going to Court.

However, there are some situations when urgent court action is required to protect the interests of your children. We are experts in being able to identify when you should go to Court and when you should negotiate.

We are also able to provide you with appropriate referrals to Child Counsellors, Mediation Dispute Resolution Services, and other relevant organisations to help you develop a Parenting Plan or any appropriate arrangement.

We have over twenty years’ experience in recognising when disputes when should be escalated and guiding our clients towards common sense outcomes. We understand the sensitive and highly emotional nature of the situation and we are highly experienced in helping clients with sensitive and complex matters when it comes to determining the best care and arrangements for children involved in separation. You are in good hands with us.

Your children will be adults a lot longer than they will be children. We play a small part in helping you resolve your relationship with your children and help you manage your ongoing relationship with your ex-partner for the benefit of your children. We help you minimise the impact on your children’s lives now and into the future.
