Parenting Orders Perth

The best interests of the child are the primary concern of the court when the court determines how the child’s time is split between the parents.

A parenting order is the result of parties reaching an agreement or the Court deciding how future arrangements such as parental responsibilities will be allocated in the best interests of the child.

Parenting orders can include, but not limited to:

  • Parental responsibility

    • Christmas
    • Easter
    • Child’s birthday
    • Parent’s birthday
    • Religious days
    • Mother’s Day and Father’s Day
  • School holidays
  • Handovers
  • Communication between the parent and the child
  • Communication between the parents
  • Medical matters
    • Administering regular medications
    • Sharing medical files between the parents
  • Travel / Passports
    • Where the child can travel and under what conditions
