Summary The thesis addresses shared parenting, an arrangement which emphasises the equal responsibility of both parents for children after separation, which is often assumed to ameliorate the supposed negative effects of parental separation. This study found that from children's perspective, the most important consideration was not the type of family they lived in but rather the quality of their relationship with each parent that impacted on their emotional adjustment. The portfolio focuses on the challenge of dealing with allegations of child sexual abuse in the context of the Family Court. The comples issues involved in these types of cases are illustrated by four case studies.
