When a Court is making decisions about the responsibilities each parent will have after a divorce, the primary objective is protecting the best interests of the children. Generally, a Court will presume that both parents should be given the opportunity to have an impact on their child’s life. When parents have shared parental responsibility, they both have a say in making major decisions regarding the child’s upbringing, including decisions about education, healthcare, religion and other important life decisions.
Alternatively, if either parent is deemed by the Court as unfit to co-parent safely and effectively because of issues such as emotional problems, drug or alcohol addictions or criminal history, the Court may award sole parental responsibility to the other parent. Our attorneys advise and assist our clients in determining the best means to effectively meet all their parenting goals.
