What is Shared Parental Responsibility?

November 17, 2017 by  
Filed under Uncategorized

“Shared parental responsibility” is where both parents retain full rights and responsibilities with respect to their child and in which both parents confer with each other so that major decisions affecting the welfare of the child will be determined together.  If the parties can not agree they can ask the court to decide the issue or change parental responsibility.
“Sole parental responsibility” means a court-ordered relationship in which one parent makes decisions regarding the minor child.
Where warranted by specific facts a court can order ultimate decision making authority or sole parental responsibility be given to one party. To award sole parental responsibility the court must make a determination that shared parental responsibility would cause detriment or harm to the child.  Sole parental responsibility is not usual and is only given where warranted by the specific facts of the case.

If you have questions about shared or sole parental responsibility in your case please call our office for a consultation.
