It is important that children maintain strong relationships with both parents and shared care works well for many separated couples.
In a separation or divorce, parents are encouraged to reach a parenting agreement around the day-to-day care (custody) of their children.
The law does not specify how much time children should spend with each parent and there is no rule as to 50/50 sharing of day-to-day care. The welfare and best interests of the child are the paramount consideration when deciding on custody arrangements.
Even if you are a father with a busy job, you do not need to be a “weekend dad”. It is certainly possible for you to have a significant share of the care of your children, and we can help you in obtaining a shared care arrangement which you are happy with.
