Child Custody

Breaking up or separating is a traumatic and difficult time for any adult. But for couples with children, often the first thought is of the impact it will have on the children. The second thought is almost always to wonder what the law says about parenting arrangements and how the separation will affect future contact with the children. At all times, you should be fully informed about your legal rights and position as well as those of the Child Custody involved.

WHEN LIFE HAPPENS a Great thanks to the team at Family Lawyers Mackay for assisting me when Life came to a sudden stop. They have not sugar coat the the process. "There is no such thing as a winner in a Family separation" , but brought it into perspective for me. Together we had a fair outcome, and fair is the cornerstone to rebuild one's life! One can not ask for more than that.

I have found everyone I have encountered at Family Lawyers Mackay very helpful. Ian Field whom I dealt with provided me with a comprehensive summary of the issues, including some I had not even considered before. And then, rather than embark on a long, hostile and expensive litigation, he brokered a negotiated resolution acceptable to both parties. The final result was very much more than what I had hoped for and the costs were significantly reduced based on his negotiations
