When referring to the care of children, the traditional word used was ‘custody’. Today, the Family Court deals with:
- ‘Equal Shared Parental Responsibility’ (ESPR) – the overarching rights, duties, powers, responsibilities and authority parents have to make the significant decisions about their children (medical, education, religion, cultural, living, names);
- ‘Live with’ – where children shall live, and with whom; and
- ‘Spend time’ – where, when and with whom the child shall spend their time.
Each parent has Equal Shared Parental Responsibility irrespective of whether they are married or not, living together or separated, whether or not they have been involved in the child’s upbringing, and even if a parent is in prison, relocated interstate or overseas, or is mentally ill. A parent’s responsibility for their child continues unless the Family Court makes an order otherwise.
