Child Custody Lawyer

It is important to note that in accordance with The Children’s Act the term “custody” has been replaced with the term “care”. The term care relates to various aspects of the child’s overall well-being. This means, to place a child in someone’s permanent care, these aspects need be considered. This is also applicable where shared parental rights and responsibilities are relevant. When obtaining parental rights and responsibilities, different rules apply to different situations. For example, the process of a married biological father may differ to that of an unmarried biological father. Similarly, artificial insemination may also undergo and be subjected to different rules. Of course, the different situations also call for different approaches, like guardians and caregivers appointed in a will, for instance. Child custody is a very complex process and an experienced child custody lawyer serves to act in the best interest of the child and assure that the child’s best interests will be met in the care of his/or her legal or biological guardian as decided by a court.
