Child Custody, Access and Welfare Principal Bristol

Child Custody Access. During a divorce, the main focus of the couple is in the custody of the child.

Child custody is the most important decision for the divorcing couples as they have to decide as to with whom the child will live and how often will the child be able to meet the other parent.

The couples who are going for Family Mediation Bristolin have to make a decision about the custody of the child.

But first, the couples have to understand what child custody really is and what all are involved during the process.

Child custody is a purely legal concept and there are four different types of custody orders which have to be made by the divorcing couples –

1. Sole Custody Order –

The custodial parent will have the right to take the major decisions for the child without any involvement of the other parent in the decision-making process.

2. Joint Custody Order –

Both the parents have to make the decision about the child with a joint agreement. This means that they have to agree with each other on the decisions being made. If there is no agreement between the parents, either one of them will have to apply in the court for the determination of the disputed issues.

3. Hybrid Order –

This is a sole custody order as well with a slight change. The custodial parent has to take the suggestions of the other non-custodial parent while taking decisions on some particular matters.

4. Split Custodian order –

this is when the custody of one or more siblings is granted to one parent and the custody of the other siblings has been granted to the other parent.

Disputes over children can be upsetting and more so for the children who will not have a voice.

The aim of this order is to help those families who have more than one child so that all the siblings can get the love of the parents. These were the main custody orders which have to be kept in mind even by those divorcing couples who are going through the process of Family Mediation .

Mediation can be an effective way to resolve child custody and access disputes. It allows couples to create a solution that is unique to their situation and is in the best interest of their children. Furthermore, the process of mediation is less expensive and less stressful than a court battle. If you or someone you know is going through a custody or access dispute, consider mediation as a way to resolve the dispute and work towards a successful, productive co-parenting relationship.
