Loving and devoted parents want, and deserve, appropriate time with their children. When relationships end, the terms of custody and access are a priority for parents. This includes decisions about where children will live and who will make important choices about their well-being.

Parents may be equally well-intentioned, but they may disagree about child care. The lawyers at Castle & Associates represent Calgary-area individuals who must finalize custody and access agreements. We are able to help our clients come to resolution with their former spouse and, when necessary, will vigorously represent our clients' interests in court.

Resolving Custody And Access Issues

Since all families have unique needs with regards to child care, there are many options when it comes to custody and access. A child may live primarily with one parent, while the other parent receives limited, but regularly scheduled, parenting time. A child may split time spent with parents equally. In some cases, one parent may be barred from contact with the child altogether.

Decisions about a child's upbringing, including religion, schooling and medical care, may be shared equally between parents, even if the child lives primarily with one parent. Parents have the ability, in general, to negotiate terms of co-parenting that works best for their families and the child involved.

Custody and access can form part of a separation agreement and must be resolved before an Alberta court will grant a divorce. Our legal professionals have the knowledge to effectively represent clients in negotiations of custody and access, and if spouses cannot agree to the terms of custody, we will represent our clients in court.
