“Generally, children have better relationships within their families when they believe their voices have been heard” - United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, Article 12, Maintenance and Custody Act, R.S.N.S. 1989, c. 160, s. 18(6)(f), Judicature Act, R.S., c. 240, s. 32F.
A custody / access assessment is a report prepared by one of our experts to assist you, your partner, and the courts in making a decision around parenting arrangements.
