Best for Kids

Legal Aid NSW has a new website Best for Kids with legal information for young people and their families. One part of the website deals with separation. This video highlights the role of a children’s lawyer.

When Families Separate

“It’s really hard for everyone when parents separate - especially kids. Sometimes when parents cannot agree, the family courts will appoint a lawyer for the kids called the Independent Children’s Lawyer. You will find information about this and other topics here.The featured video explains the role of the Independent Children’s Lawyer. You can watch the interactive brochures for more information about Independent Children’s Lawyers. The coloured speech bubbles and links at the bottom of the page have more information about family separation, legal stuff and helping you cope.”
