After a relationship breaks down, decisions about child custody and access must be made. The primary factor for the Court to consider will always be the best interests of the child. You may be entitled to custody of the child if he/she will be living with you at least part of the time, if you take responsibility for making decisions for the child, and if this is in the child’s best interests. Various forms of custody are available, such as sole custody, joint custody, and split custody.
