Child Custody Sydney

inner-banner

A legal solution to child custody.

A child recovery order may be necessary when one parent relocates to a new address after separation with the children without the agreement of the other parent. In such scenarios, the other parent may apply for a Recovery Order under VII of Family Law Act 1975. The Court can make an order to return the children to a parent as well as prohibit a parent from removing the child from a place of residence.

I am Matthew Buckley, and I have been guiding separated parents who want to explore the legal options to have their children returned to them. As an experienced child custody lawyer in Sydney, I will provide advice regarding a recovery order application in the Court. Furthermore, if you are concerned that your spouse will attempt to take your child away from you, I will be able to help you in the following ways:

  • Take necessary legal steps to prevent the removal of the child from the state or Australia.
  • Obtain an urgent order from the Court to quarantine the child’s passport.
  • Communicate with police to prevent the parent from taking the child out of Australia.
  • Provide legal advice in circumstances where a parent has removed a child from Australia without consent.

How We Approach Child Custody Cases In Sydney And Nsw

There are occasions when a single parent has no options other than to relocate with the child without any agreement of a partner. In such circumstances you can apply to the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia with the help of a lawyer for Parenting Orders in order to move to your desired location.

If mental or physical abuse has led you to relocate with your child, it is important to seek legal advice before the situation worsens. There may be parenting orders in place which you may be in breach of which can lead to a wide range of penalties.

It is natural that parents who find themselves in such difficult situations can take a wrong step out of confusion. Being a respected lawyer, I can provide guidance and support regarding your child’s recovery as fast as possible. At the same time, if you are not sure where your spouse has relocated with your child then I can help you in applying to the Court for a Location, Commonwealth Information or a Publication Order from the Court to help in locating your child.
