Child Custody & Access

Custody refers to decision making for the child. A parent who has sole custody has the sole authority to make a final decision for the child. Parents who share joint custody of the child make decisions together.

Often the areas of a child’s life that require a decision to be made are health, education and religion. Access (also referred to as “parenting time”) refers to when the child sees a parent. It is often in the best interests of the parents and the child to have a schedule in place to provide the child with routine and predictability. 

Issues of custody and access can be emotionally charged.
