Holidays and custody access

2010-03-19

As the holiday season approaches, courtrooms see a huge increase in the volume legal issues related to custody access.
Family law expert Nick Bala can provide insight and tips for parents attempting to settle child custody issues for the holidays.
According to professor Bala the parents who are in the courtroom are those who have the most difficulty co-operating. The question is whether they are thinking most about the best interests of their children or about themselves. How do we currently define access and how do we enforce it? Should we instead be moving to new concepts? Should we be changing the concepts that we use and the way that parents make post-separation arrangements for the care of their children?
