Dedication to Keeping You Informed

Our family lawyers who serve Markham and the surrounding area have 60 combined years of expertise and will help you understand just what access and custody cases mean from a legal standpoint. Our honest assessment of your situation will give you the information you need to make intelligent decisions about your case.

Custody

Either a court order or an agreement between involved parties will determine child custody. While joint custody in Ontario is possible, only one parent will usually be awarded custody in a dispute. In the event of a dispute, involving a family lawyer as soon as possible is crucial, especially if there is even the slightest chance of your spouse unfairly winning full custody of your children.

Access

In most situations, children will benefit from continuing a close relationship with both parents after a divorce or separation. As a result, access is usually determined separately from custody.

In an ideal situation, both parties can negotiate access agreements via experienced family lawyers. However, if the court must be involved, the decision will likely be based on allowing the children to stay in contact with both parents.
