Divorce presents a lot of problems, especially if you have young children involved. In addition to settling property disputes and handling joint debt, you and your partner have to divvy up childcare responsibilities.
If one parent retains sole custody for the children, the other parent can typically access (or visit) the children. But how much access you or your former partner has varies depending on your situation and lifestyle.
At Wise Scheible Barkauskas, we have a child access lawyer in Calgary who can help you balance access and childcare so it suits you, your partner, and your children.
What We Do
Childcare doesn't stop when the marriage ends. During a divorce, your child's care remains the primary focus. Ideally, you and your partner will want to reach an amicable agreement regarding your child's care outside of court. If you need a little help resolving minor issues, then our mediation lawyer can guide you through negotiations.
On the other hand, if you can't reach an agreement, the court will order custody and access according to the child’s best interests. You (or your spouse) may receive full, limited, graduated, or no access based on your relationships with the children. If you disagree with the court's decision, a Calgary child access lawyer can help you make an appeal and present your case in a more favourable light.
Schedule a Consultation
Because child access can quickly lead to drawn-out hearings and legal battles, you'll want a lawyer on your side to help you overcome any obstacles that come your way.
