Hello, my name is brian galbraith and i’m the owner of galbraith family law. we’re a law firm of family law lawyers located in Barrie, Orillia and Newmarket. How does a father get custody of his children? Now, there’s a myth out there that fathers never get custody of their children. This is based on the historic fact that, traditionally, mothers were primarily responsible for the care of children and fathers were the bread winners. So it made sense, in those days, that the court would order custody to the mother since.
She was the one primarily looking after the children anyway. it was in the children’s best interested to be with their mother. Nowadays, both mothers and fathers usually participate in the care giving and in earning the income for the family. As a result the Ontario courts are more inclined to order an equal time sharing regime for the children. If a father wants custody of his children, he needs to prove that it’s in the best interest of the children that he has custody. A strong argument would be that he was traditionally.
The one responsible or primarily responsible for the care, and that he can continue to provide the care that the children want and deserve. Custody battles are often very nasty. They can take many months and even years to resolve and cost thousands of dollars in legal fees. The children often suffer when there’s a custody battle between their parents. As a result we prefer to help our clients negotiate a settlement. One of the best processes to do that is called collaborative practice. That’s a process where.
The parties agree not to go to court and they work with professionals to find a resolution to their petty issues and any other issues that they have to resolve related to the separation. It’s a very cost effective process and keeps the power of decision making in the hands of the parents. Most importantly, it helps prevent the children from being in the middle of a battle between mum and dad. If this tutorial’s been helpful, give it a thumps up.
