Child Custody and Access Advice in New Tecumseth


Sole custody or joint custody? Who has primary residency, and who has final decision-making authority? Is your access time 2 hours a week at a supervised access centre, or overnights in your home? What about holidays? Summer vacation, and out of country travel? Mother’s Day and Father’s Day?


Negotiating terms of custody and access can be a lengthy and painful task. The children suffer the most when they are in the centre of the conflict. These issues must be set out in a signed Separation Agreement or a Court Order to make a separation work for both parents and children.
