Ontario Custody and Access: Who’s Is Entitled To The Child? – video

Wednesday’s Video Clip: Ontario Custody and Access, Who’s Is Entitled To The Child?

There is a general misconception that when a couple separates, the children must automatically stay with their mother. But in Ontario, the mother and father are equally entitled to custody of the child.

In this video we examine who is entitled to custody of the child, defacto custody, and mistake parents, often fathers, make regarding custody and the establishment of a status quo. She also explains the difference between custody and access.

    i did pm with a question. I was asking if a parent whom has full custody of the child, can that parent chance the child’s name, without putting the estrange parent on notice. All court documents would have to be change to reflect the new name. But does the other parent really need to know.
