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, consulting with a family lawyer as soon as possible is crucial, especially if there is even the slightest chance of your spouse unfairly obtaining full custody of your children.


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 will be able to 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.
