Child Custody Lawyer

Family law and child custody is a complex area of practice. Parental rights and responsibilities over a child is governed by The Children’s Act. Of course, biological parents inherit these rights automatically, but different factors apply to different situations and The Children’s Act is there to serve situations in which the parental rights and responsibilities over a child no longer apply to the automatic situation. Different rules apply to different scenarios. It is also of importance to acknowledge that biological mothers no longer gain automatic custody of their children based on the fact that they gave birth to child or children in cases of divorce or separation. As such, shared custody may also be granted. The act also makes provision to grant parental rights and responsibilities over children in the absence of a biological connection between adult and child. The outcome is governed by The Children’s Act and whomever gains custody, whether full or shared, must always act in the child’s best interests while also considering the child’s wishes.
