Parenting disputes are almost always a dramatic and emotional affair. It is hard to imagine anything more difficult than a dispute over a child with the person that helped bring your child into this world. Rest assured that your child has a right to a meaningful relationship with you.
It is important to get proper legal advice early to know where you stand.
The court’s paramount consideration when dealing with parenting matters is the best interests of the child. The best interests of the child are achieved by ensuring the child is protected from harm and given the opportunity to pursue a meaningful relationship with both parents.
The law require the court to consider equal shared parental responsibility and equal time with the child. However, not everyone’s personal circumstances allow for the child to spend equal time with each parent.
