The best interests of the child are paramount in all family law matters, but what exactly does this mean for grandparents? Topics covered include: - ‘best interests’ and the Family Law Act parenting principles as they apply to grandparents - seeking parenting orders as ‘functional parents’ - Compulsory Family Dispute Resolution process and consent orders - capacity to provide for the needs of the child - eligibility for Legal Aid and child support - welfare payments and other issues.
