3 Comments Family & de facto law, financial agreements, consent orders
You can do a financial settlement without including childrens matters, but what is your situation. Do you currently have reasonable & regular contact & if not do you want it & are you able to take it on?
As a guide, reasonable contact should be minimum 2 nights a FN, perhaps a mid-week visit for a couple of hours & half of school holidays, alternate xmas & special days by agreement.
Edit.. to correct error

I was having 2 nights a FN minimum with my daughter starting when she was just under 2yo.
What level of contact do you have, are there plans in place to extend it or formalise it somehow. What's her reasons for not wanting to include something in orders now while you have the consent orders being put together for finances. It would make sense to include childrens matters now.
