ABOUT VICTORIA

VICTORIA IS A WIFE AND MUM WITH A MASSIVE PASSION FOR FAMILY LAW, MOST IMPORTANTLY, TO ENSURE FAIR OUTCOMES FOR ALL CHILDREN. THIS INCLUDES PROTECTING THE RIGHT'S OF CHILDREN, ENSURING THEIR MENTAL WELL-BEING IS AT THE FOREFRONT OF DECISIONS AND THAT, WHERE POSSIBLE, CHILDREN HAVE POSITIVE CONTACT WITH BOTH PARENTS. 

HER BLOGS AND VIDEOS INCLUDE FACTS ON FAMILY LAW, CHILDREN'S HUMAN RIGHTS, CHILDREN'S MENTAL HEALTH, DOMESTIC ABUSE AND PARENTAL ALIENATION. 

IMPORTANT RIGHTS OF CHILDREN WE MUST ENSURE REMAIN IN PLACE DURING FAMILY SEPARATIONS INCLUDE:

(TAKEN FROM THE UN CONVENTION ON THE RIGHTS OF A CHILD)

ARTICLE 9 (SEPARATION FROM PARENTS) CHILDREN MUST NOT BE SEPARATED FROM THEIR PARENTS AGAINST THEIR WILL UNLESS IT IS IN THEIR BEST INTERESTS (FOR EXAMPLE, IF A PARENT IS HURTING OR NEGLECTING A CHILD). CHILDREN WHOSE PARENTS HAVE SEPARATED HAVE THE RIGHT TO STAY IN CONTACT WITH BOTH PARENTS, UNLESS THIS COULD CAUSE THEM HARM.

ARTICLE 11 (ABDUCTION AND NON-RETURN OF CHILDREN) GOVERNMENTS MUST DO EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO STOP CHILDREN BEING TAKEN OUT OF THEIR OWN COUNTRY ILLEGALLY BY THEIR PARENTS OR OTHER RELATIVES OR BEING PREVENTED FROM RETURNING HOME.

ARTICLE 18 (PARENTAL RESPONSIBILITIES AND STATE ASSISTANCE) BOTH PARENTS SHARE RESPONSIBILITY FOR BRINGING UP THEIR CHILD AND SHOULD ALWAYS CONSIDER WHAT IS BEST FOR THE CHILD. GOVERNMENTS MUST SUPPORT PARENTS BY CREATING SUPPORT SERVICES FOR CHILDREN AND GIVING PARENTS THE HELP THEY NEED TO RAISE THEIR CHILDREN
