Children’s issues and parenting orders


Unless a matter is urgent, applicants need to fulfil the prescribed pre-filing procedures and ensure that they have attempted to negotiate a resolution of children’s issues at mediation prior to filing an application in either the Family Court or the Federal Circuit Court. If, however, you have an urgent application then it is possible to file that application without having attended at mediation. Your solicitor will be able to advise you as to whether or not the particular circumstances of your case will enable you to proceed directly to court and bypass the mediation process.  

Each case is treated individually in both the Federal Circuit Court and the Family Court. It is important that you speak to a solicitor about your specific factual circumstances and obtain advice as to the most likely outcome. It is impossible to provide any guaranteed result but our solicitors are well experienced in Family Law matters and are able to provide you with the best advice available.
