Children's safety comes first

Helen* was in deep conflict with the father of her children in relation to the arrangements for their children.

There was a bitter and entrenched conflict that risked the child’s safety (given the conflict was related to domestic violence).

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Women’s Legal Service NQ represented Helen and was able to help her negotiate a settlement with the father that they were both able to agree to, and that ensured the child’s safety.
