What Do We Do As Edmonton’s Finest Child Decision-Making Lawyers?
Parenting time and child decision-making is the legal authority given to make decisions on behalf of a child whose parents are not in an intact relationship anymore.
At Peak Family Law, our trained professional family lawyers will help you reach an agreement that is beneficial for both parties and the children involved. There are some cases in which the child’s decision-making is decided by the parents at the time of speciation. If this is the case, then you need to make sure that all the agreements are properly documented in a legally binding separation agreement.
Also, when determining which parenting arrangements are in the best interests of the child, the court considers the following factors:
- Each parent’s capability to provide care for the child.
- The child’s interaction with the parents, grandparents, siblings, and other relatives.
- The wishes of the child and parents.
- Any indicator of child dependency, child abuse, possible abduction, and neglect.
- Each parent’s willingness to cooperate or make collaborative decisions.
We provide thorough, driven and attentive representation for every case we handle. If the stakes are high and your visitation, parenting, or child decision-making rights are in question, our lawyers will work hard to protect your legal rights.
