The Australian Government is planning to change its laws regarding custody of minor children. If the changes are approved, before custody is awarded a parent, there would have to be proof of a meaningful relationship with the child or children involved in the dispute. There will also have to be proof that the parent will provide for them financially and is willing to provide a home. The proposed changes also include setting up dispute resolution centers to deal with custody cases considered appropriate for informal negotiations. Source: au.news.yahoo.com.
