Child Support – parental responsibility and decisions
Where there are no orders for parenting in place then the legislature assumes that the parents have equal shared responsibility of being parents. What does this mean? It means that you and your ex-partner are both jointly responsible for the long term and day to day decisions for the children.
In making orders for parenting a court must at the beginning determine whether the assumption applies and if so from there what the children’s time with each parent should be. For parents with shared responsibility the beginning point is equal time if it is the best interest of the child and are practices that are reasonable to both parents.
In criminal law, these are the areas of practice:
- Applications for Bail
- Traffic matters
- Complex matters
- Hearing and appeals
Wills and Estates
Wills and estates include:
- Power of Attorney
- Enduring guardianship
- Estate administration
Under this type of law is probate which is a legal document that proves a will and authorizes the executor to manage the estate of the deceased. This primary role of the executor is to determine the property of the deceased, pay out for any debts and then distribute the assets in accordance with the will. If you or a loved one has been named as an executor, our solicitors are able to assist with the process of probate an administration. It is becoming more common these days that a person dies without any will. This is known as dying intestate.
These attorneys can also help with your own will as well as naming someone as having your Power of Attorney.
