Access Agreements: What You Need to Know

If you are going through a divorce or separation, the process of deciding where your children will live can be incredibly distressing. Coming to an access agreement with the other parent, without going to court, is said to lead to more harmonious arrangements with greater satisfaction on both sides. But, depending on the circumstances, this won’t always be possible.

Parental Responsibility

In such situations, it can help to have an expert on hand to talk you through the minefield of access. In most cases, within a marriage the mother and father are considered equally responsible for important decisions relating to their child. ‘Parental Responsibility’ allows you to have a say in issues such as where your child lives, where they are schooled, what medical treatment they receive, and whether they can travel or live abroad.

If you need help understanding and/or setting out a parental responsibility agreement between you and your former partner, it may well be worth seeking professional advice.

If you are the father in a separated, unmarried couple, Edward Hayes can apply to the court to help you gain parental responsibility. And if you are a parent experiencing difficulties in gaining access to your children, experts at Edward Hayes can negotiate for you and if necessary apply to the court for a contact order, so that you will be able to see them.

Similarly, if you are the resident parent and have concerns about the other parent having contact with your child, specialist lawyers can help to ensure that their welfare is protected.
