It is possible that a father could get “sole custody” or in Australia what is known as sole parental responsibility of their child. However, under the Australian Family Law system, sole parental responsibility is only awarded in instances where a child is at an unacceptable risk of any kind of harm.

Children have the right to have a meaningful relationship with both parents, as long as they are protected from harm.

If you’re a father and you’re concerned about the safety of your child with their other parent, you can discuss your matter with us today.
