- Custody in a divorce is arguably the most important decision that has to be made, both by you and the court for what is in the “best interests of the child”
- Sterling Law can help you, whether mother or father, to get rights to see and spend as much time as possible with your children
- UK custody law skews towards mothers in terms of custody, but a variety of factors are considered, including:
- The child’s desires as to who they want to be with
- The likely future life situations of each parent
- Actions in the past regarding looking after the child – how committed each parent was, etc
- The behaviours, actions, and character/nature of each parent.
Types of custody
- This is the most common type of custody order in the UK
- One parent – parent A- spends the majority of the time with the child, and the other parent – parent B – (typically the father) gets visitation rights – to see their child on weekends or other specific days
- Parent A gets to make the final, binding decisions for the child, and is responsible for their everyday life
- Parent B has the legal right to be involved in “major decisions” for the child. If this right is refused, our expert team will make sure that you are not unfairly being restricted from seeing your child and having an influence in their life
- Not typically the route courts go down, but if the divorce is amicable this can often be agreed with the spouse
- The child spends an equal amount of time with each parent, and both parents are responsible. Parent B in this case is an equal with Parent A, and they both have rights and responsibility for the child
- Contact Sterling Law to get help creating a strong and fair contract to see your child.
