Child Custody

Child custody is one of the most complicated facets of family law. As your family lawyer in Vaughan, we will prioritize your kids' mental health and well-being, and ensure that they're taken care of. There are several different types of child custody in the Province, including:


  • Legal custody: Legal custody entails who will be responsible for making the crucial decisions regarding the child's upbringing, including education and healthcare.

  • Physical custody: Physical custody concerns the child's daily caretaking and primary residence. Those with physical custody are supposed to meet the child's basic needs, such as nutrition, shelter, and clothing.

  • Sole custody: As the term suggests, only one co-parent has custody of the child. Sole custody can be both legal and physical custody.

  • Joint custody: Joint custody implies that both co-parents will share responsibility over the child's physical or legal custody.
