Understanding the custody and safeguarding issues

Legally, children fall under their mother’s primary care until the age of maturity.

However, both share in the parental responsibility, which includes ensuring the provision of basic needs until they reach adulthood (set at 18yrs).

Besides the basics, a parent handles the child’s discipline and planning their future lives.

Separation brings many complications to the setup as both parents may often disagree on custody and some parental responsibilities.

Safeguarding issues happen where one spouse has concerns about the children’s safety while in the custody of the other.

Take Action

Divorce can be an expensive and ugly process if partners do not commit to resolve the problem.

Moreover, it has adverse psychological effects on the child. Knowing how to communicate to the children about separation is a challenge, so fighting for their custody can destroy them. Most of these disputes end up in a long and exasperating court battle.

However, the courts may not solve the emotional disconnect that results from the process.

At Free Family Mediation, we help to create an environment that allows both of you to talk and agree.

Besides, you can put the money you might have spent on legal fees to good use by taking care of the children.
