Child Parenting Orders

Parenting Orders are orders made by the Court that deal with the arrangements for a child or children when parents have separated. Following separation, Parenting Orders can be made by agreement between the parties by way of ‘Consent Orders’, or after a Court hearing.

In making Parenting Orders, the Court takes into account the best interests of the child/children.

Parenting Orders can cover:

  • Who the child/children live with;
  • Who the child/children spend time and communicate with;
  • Any other issues relevant to the care of the child/children, such as schooling and medical treatment.
