Child custody is an emotionally-charged issue. Divorce is difficult for everyone involved, and it's often even more stressful when you have children. You want to do what's best for your kids, and you need a lawyer who knows how to navigate child custody. We are experienced in family law and can guide you through negotiating custody and access arrangements.
In Saskatchewan, joint legal custody is the default for parents who have lived together and raised their children together. They both have a right to make legal, financial, medical, and educational decisions for their children, even if they were not married. Access refers to each parent's right to spend time with their child. Both parents have a right to access. It is extremely rare for the court to remove all access from any parent; specified access is the more likely outcome. We understand how important it is to maintain contact with your children during this difficult time; we are here to advocate on your behalf and ensure you have access as often as possible.
At Andrews Benko & Associates, we're here for you when you need us most—whether it's in negotiating custody arrangements or defending them in court. We understand that many factors go into deciding what kind of custody arrangement is best for your child, and we will work with you to find a solution that will work for everyone involved.
