Child Relocation Perth  – Adviser’s obligations in relation to best interests of the child

In some child relocation Perth cases an adviser may advise a person about the way the Family Court of Western Australia makes Orders concerning children.

Child Relocation Perth and the Paramount Consideration

An adviser informs the advisee that the paramount consideration of the Court when making orders will be the best interests of the children.

Child Relocation Perth and Acting in the Child’s Best Interests

An adviser informs the advisee to act with the intention of meeting the child’s best interests. This should consider the child having meaningful relationships with both of the child’s parents. To the extent that the relationships ensure the child is protected from being subjected or exposed to physical or psychological harm, abuse, neglect or family violence.

Family law matters can be very complex. It is important to note that this is not legal advice. We therefore recommend you seek specific legal advice from one of our very experienced Child Relocation Perth lawyers if you need assistance interpreting how the Family Law Act affects you. You are invited to discuss your particular matter with our Legal Practitioner Director Shannon Bodeker.

Shannon’s special interest is child relocation and she completed her Honours thesis “The Freedom of Movement of Residential Parents (and others) subsequent to the Family Law Reform Act 1995 (Cth)” in this area. In 1998 she was involved in the landmark High Court case AMS v AIF; AIF v AMS (1999). Her thesis was cited by His Honour Justice Kirby in that case.
