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 divorce lawyer Abi Adeusi discusses 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.
In this video Russell discusses common questions lawyers are asked about child support. Topics include hardship and the process for reducing child support, child support for incomes over $150,000, the obligations of step-parents, medical and dental insurance, and what information is needed to determine child support.
We hope you find our video informative.
