Case Assessment Conference – Perth Custody Lawyers

If your child custody matter isn’t resolved during the pre-action proceedings, you may be required to attend a Case Assessment Conference.

The purpose of the conference is to:

  1. Help the court assess the issues in dispute and determine how they can assist; and
  2. Give another opportunity for the parties to negotiate a resolution; and
  3. Create a case management plan to help achieve the best outcome for the children.

The court may then give direction on how your child custody is to proceed. If you do not attend your conference, orders may be made in your absence.

Child custody matters can be very complex. We therefore recommend you seek legal advice from one of our very experienced Perth family lawyers. We invite you to discuss your particular matter with our Legal Practitioner Director, Ms. Shannon Bodeker, who has been working in family law for over 20 years.

Prior to your first appointment, you may send us an email, fax or similar, outlining your situation in as much detail as you like. This information will be read on a complimentary basis prior to your first family law appointment. We get to know you and your family law matter before we meet.

Please note this is not family law advice. It is important to seek advice specific to your circumstances. We are very experienced Perth family law solicitors and can provide you with the very best legal advice regarding child custody matters.
