Separation & Child Welfare
When a relationship breaks down, arrangements for custody/contact and residence with any children must be prioritised in a separation. Naturally, this is an intuition for any loving parent, but the courts also view that child welfare must be addressed regardless of anything else.
Even in an amicable split, difficult decisions must be made about the care and welfare of children. Regardless of what we might want personally as parents, any decisions made need to be realistic about what is best for any children involved.
A Separation Agreement, financial agreement, or minute of agreement can be a significant step in ensuring children involved are protected and cared for in the best way as a relationship unwinds. This could include prioritising assets in an agreement on residing at a family home, for example.
