Frequently Asked Questions

How does the court decide who the child should live or spend time with?

Contrary to popular belief, there are no “clear cut” rules as to who a child should live with (“custody”) or spend time with (“access”).

What’s essential for the Court when deciding which parent the child will reside with is for the child’s best interests. This also determines how much time the child will spend with the other parent.

The Family Law Act 1975 lays forth the factors to consider while deciding the child’s best interests.

What makes a reliable family lawyer?

You’ll need the help of a qualified family lawyer to resolve family law matters such as child custody and divorce. The eminence of a family lawyer you hire can have a major impact on the outcome of your case.

We want to be the go-to experts for those going through the painful and often stressful divorce and separation process. For many years, we have been the family law specialists that people in Brisbane and the surrounding regions look to for dependable and sensitive advice, helping them through situations that may be physically and emotionally exhausting at times.

Why Choose Page Provan Family and Fertility Lawyers?

Page Provan has dedicated family lawyers who exclusively practice family law. As we have such a specialised staff, we may delegate work to a solicitor with the necessary degree of knowledge to save you money. It also gives us experience, resources, personalised attention, and efficiency.

We have lawyers who have been trained in mediation and alternative dispute resolution to help you get the best possible results without going to court.

Family Law that is Child-Focussed

We are very much child focussed. We are aware that every step taken in resolving or prolonging the dispute will have an impact of some kind on your child. We work with experts in social science, such as counsellors, to help reduce the impact on you and your kids of the separation and any court case.

Resolving Disputes

Most disputes between separating couples are best resolved through negotiation rather than through court. There are a number of options available and we can explain those to you. Those options include negotiation, mediation, collaboration, arbitration and family dispute resolution.

Litigation if You Need It

However, if the dispute can’t be resolved through one of these means and ends up in court, we will advocate strongly for you. This often involves engaging other experts such as barristers, social workers, counsellors, valuers and accountants.

For those matters which can be resolved by agreement, we can explain the options available to you to document the agreement including court orders, binding financial agreements, child support agreements and parenting plans.
