Child Custody
It is a widely held misconception that custody of children is automatically awarded to the mother – the child
(ren’s) best interest is paramount and that is what determines where and with who the child(ren) lives.

Where the safety of a child(ren) may be an issue an emergency court appearance may be necessary – a
lawyer should be consulted. Both parents remain responsible for their children even if they live apart and
arrangements for their care (which includes their residence, food, clothing and other necessities) must be
worked out).  The best thing to do is arrange this before separation – consulting a lawyer is advisable.
