Experienced Kitchener family law lawyers and mediators with over 40 years of firm experience assisting clients with Parenting Plans
Parents who do not live together must decide how they will arrange to share their parenting rights and responsibilities. When parents are facing a separation, they must consider two areas: First, parents must decide how they will make major decisions affecting their children. Examples of these decisions include what school the children will attend and where the children will live. Second, parents must decide on what living arrangements are best for the children.
A parent cannot withhold parenting time for the other parent as leverage for the negotiation of financial issues. If you are concerned about the ability of the other parent to care for a child, the court can order supervised parenting. If the parents cannot come to an agreement on their own, a court may decide upon these arrangements based upon what the court believes to be in the best interests of the children, which is the most important consideration in matters affecting children.
