Parental Responsibility Agreements or Parenting Arrangements

What is the Court's view on parenting arrangements?

Generally speaking, the Court can express the following views when making order with respect to parenting arrangements:

  • The Court encourages parents to make arrangements that meet the needs of the children and family.
  • The Court encourages families to make their own decisions and offers a range of mediation services to help them do so.
  • Contact with family members is considered to be the right of a child (not the right of a parent).
  • Where children express a view and are of sufficient maturity, their views should be considered by parents. There is no set age for this as all children and families are different.
  • The Court usually considers that it is in the child’s best interest to maintain contact with both parents.
  • Denial of contact with the other parent may have serious consequences for the child's development.
  • Children need to be safe and protected from harm and the Court will make decisions based on a child's unique circumstances.

Parenting Plans

For agreements such as Parenting Plans to work, parental cooperation is essential. Without this cooperation, parenting is bound to become difficult and cause problems for both you and your children.

As parents, you are in the best position to make decisions about your children because you know them so well. Older children usually like to play a part in the decision-making as well, so it is important to listen carefully to them when they express opinions or feelings about parenting arrangements. Family and child mediators and counsellors may be able to help you and your children discuss their needs.

When parents cannot agree, the Court will make the arrangements considered to best meet the needs of the children.

Judges consider carefully the circumstances of your family before making final decisions and then it is up to both parents to follow the orders made.

It can be difficult to adjust to your new circumstances and this can impact on your mental health.

Worrying about the impact of relationship breakdown, separation and divorce on children can add to the stress of the situation.

There are a range of services available which provide assistance and support to those experiencing relationship breakdown, separation and divorce. Family Relationship Centres are a first port of call for families seeking help. Through information and referral, the centres help families strengthen relationships and deal with relationship difficulties.

Changes to Australia's family law system introduced since July 2006 means that individuals wanting to apply to the court for a parenting order must first attempt family dispute resolution if appropriate. If family dispute resolution is not appropriate or an agreement not reached then a certificate can be obtained from a registered family dispute resolution practitioner confirming an attempt at family dispute resolution was made.

Note: There are some exceptions to this requirement, such as cases involving family violence or child abuse.

Family Relationship centres can also refer individuals, couples and families to a range of other helpful services to enhance family relationships.
