How does Child Custody & Access work?

When a relationship breaks down many couples can make satisfactory arrangements for the custody of children without the assistance of the Courts.

However, agreement is not always possible and the Courts arbitrate when disputes arise over access to children and child custody.

Where this is necessary, decisions will be made in light of what the Court considers to be the best interests of the child. Almost all disputed cases involving contact or residence are difficult and there is often no obvious right or wrong answer.
