    Child Custody FAQs

    Many parents hope to avoid the adversarial, expensive and often lengthy process of going to court. If you and your former partner agree on the future arrangements for children, you do not have to go to court. You can make a parenting agreement or obtain consent orders for parenting orders approved by a court.

    There’s a common misconception that courts usually give custody to a mother, but this is certainly not always the case. As long as there are no risk factors with either parent, the court will attempt to find a shared custody arrangement based on the child’s best interest.

    It is recommended that children under 18 months live with their primary caregiver most of the time, with short, frequent visits with the other parent. Toddlers and preschoolers can spend a whole day with the other parent, and school age children will be able to do overnighters with the second parent more easily. By the time they’re teenagers they’ll be able to have a say in where they spend more time.

    According to the Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS), around 80% of custodial parents are mothers and, in cases of joint custody arrangements, the mother is the primary custodial parent more than 90% of the time. Fathers gain sole custody in about 10% of all cases, are the primary custodial parent in about 11% of cases, and share custody in about 7% of cases.

    If you and your partner share joint custody of your child, you may need to pay child support if your incomes are vastly different or if your custody is not split equally.

    The most common child custody arrangement in Australia is known as “joint custody” or “shared care”. This means both parents spend time with their children and are involved in making decisions about their children’s lives. Less commonly, sole custody is awarded to one parent.
