When you separate, one of your main priorities is to establish the living arrangements for your children. Those arrangements need to be in the children’s best interest.

There are no set rules as to how much time a child is to spend with either parent. Often a child will live with one parent, the primary carer, and spend time with the other parent. In some circumstances, a child spends equal time with each parent. Each family is unique, and different arrangements work for different families.

At Klimek & Wijay, our family lawyers in Perth can assist you in reaching a suitable child-focused agreement with the other parent which satisfies both parties involved. If you require legal advice or assistance in regards to your child and parenting issues after a separation has taken place, contact our experienced legal team today.
