    Child Custody means “Care, control and responsibility for the well-being of a child”. Types of Child custody:

  • Sole: only one person is awarded custody of the child;
  • Joint: more than one person, usually both of the child’s parents, share custody of the child, and have equal rights and responsibilities for the child;
  • Shared: in which the parents have joint custody, and the child lives for an equal length of time with each parent; and
  • Split: Where each of the parties have custody of a child of the marriage ( For example one child with father and 2nd child with mother)

  • Access : Child Access, or Visitation Rights, is when a child who lives with one parent goes to visit the other parent for a few hours/a weekend or for longer, such as during a vacation. If a parent does not has custody of the child, he/she still has right to claim access visits with the child, so as to continue to have a good relationship with the child.
