It is so important to remember that when you separate, you may lose the titles of husband and wife. When your case finishes, you lose the title of litigants. But when children are involved, you never lose the title of mum and dad. In the forefront of any decision, any dispute, and all conflict, should be your role as mum or dad. How will your decision effect your children’s future? How will your dispute impact your relationship with your children? Even the most simple of property settlement disputes effects children, so be wise, avoid conflict, and be child focussed in all your choices. Together, we can change the way you separate and we can create a family law pathway that avoids conflict and focuses on the needs of your family moving forward.
