Family Law and poverty

Every day, all over this country, couples decide that enough is enough.

They need to discuss the decision with the children, and eventually thay will end up asking a judge to apportion custody rights and access, as well as work out what is to happen to their property.

In many cases, the result of those decisions, is that one parent will end up with nothing. They may have limited access to the child or children, but one will keep paying to ensure the children have what they need to keep going to school and to be active members of their community.

Non custodial parents senate team will be the voice of those men and women in the senate, to develop a more equitable process for decisions about children and property, to ensure that one of the partners doesn’t end up homeless, or living in utter poverty, which is not now a consideration in any family law matter.
