Anyone embroiled in a family law dispute will be well aware of the delays associated with going to Court.
Until the systematic problems with the Family Law Court system are addressed, there are a number of things you can do to reduce the delays in your own family law matter.
Are you contemplating leaving your partner, but are apprehensive about the impact on your finances? Fear of a lack of resources is not a good reason to stay in an unhappy relationship! With some planning and support, you can manage your separation so your standard of living does not plummet.
Children rely on their parents for food, shelter, emotional support and love. However, during divorce proceedings, parents often need some support of their own.
If you are going through a relationship breakdown, remember that Courts smile upon parents who act in the ‘best interests of the child.’ Of course, this is easier said than done when your former partner is acting increasingly childish about your parenting arrangements.
