Child Custody Canada

In cases of child custody, Canada and the provinces may not award child custody to the person you may think is the most likely. In a hotly contested child custody dispute, even if you are a good parent, you may not get custody of your children. Therefore, it is important that you do everything you can to increase your chances of getting child custody in Canada. Nine ways that will improve the odds in your favour include:

Keep extensive documentation
Understand the law relating to child custody
Do not move out of the matrimonial home
Retain a good divorce lawyer
Be prepared to spend a lot of money
Have a child custody assessment done
Theory of the case
Behave well
Stay involved in your children's lives
