now referred to as "Parenting Time"
Child Access now called "Parenting Time":
The living arrangements/parenting time is about how much time each parent spends with the child/ren and with which parent the child/ren lives.
Children’s living arrangements can vary greatly. In some cases children maintain a primary residence with one parent and visit regularly with the other. In others the children divide their time equally or approximately equally between their parents’ homes
Both parents have the right to be given information regarding a child’s health, education and welfare, unless otherwise ordered by the court.
Source: Divorce Act s. 16(5)
Don’t let the court and strangers to your family decide on the parenting schedule and tell you when you see your child/ren. The impact on your child/ren is radically reduced when you discuss and reach your own agreement within an amicable process.
Don't know where to start or how to begin?
It's to be expected. The internet sites has such a lot of information that it can difficult to try to make sense of and apply to your situation, especially when you are trying to care for children, continue to work, figure our your future, all while in in a heightened emotional state. People all around you are offering advice that isn't helping. You need help!! Over 20 years or my work, I've heard too many times I wish I'd talked to you first because I feel SO much better, informed and have a plan for what comes next.
It would be my pleasure to help you!
