Child Access and Visitation in Manitoba, Canada
Child Access and Visitation
“Visitation” in a family law matter is when one parent is awarded custody of the children, and the other parent is granted access. Parents with “access” are allowed to visit and be visited by their children, be informed about their children’s health, education, and welfare. In the child’s best interest, Canadian courts believe that children should have as much contact as possible with both parents.
“Supervised Access” refers to visits between the children and the parent that take place at a facility where they are supervised by social workers. If there is a risk of abduction, or if the court has concerns as to the person’s parenting ability, supervised access is awarded to the parent.
Child custody and access arrangements can be altered by the courts, because what was best for the children at one instance, may no longer currently be in the children’s best interest. As time passes, children’s needs will change, as will parent’s circumstances.
Once the living and care arrangements have been made for your children through custody and access preparations, child support will need to be determined. Even though they are divorced, Canada’s child support law states:
“All children should continue to benefit from the financial means of both parents as if they were still together”.
As a result of the way our case has been handled we are actually ahead of schedule with our plans to move to Canada. Mike and the team at Alghoul Law Firm have created a new reality for us. Our sincere and heartfelt thanks to have made this all possible.
Thank you for the help and advice you have given us. It has made what is a very stressful experience a lot less so and we have an end to our dreams of immigrating to Canada now in sight.
The lawyer at Alghoul and Associates Law office got my wife Canadian permanent resident to bring my wife to Canada from China through the Canada Immigration Spousal sponsorship program. They also got my mother super visa so my mom to be here with me and my wife when we are having our first baby girl. The office staff completed the forms and helped gather documents. The law office also communicate directly with Citizenship and Immigration Canada CIC on my behalf and my mother behalf on several occasions to replay and follow up on my application. The lawyer was knowledgeable and staff very friendly and helpful. Thank you for everything
I had a very nice meeting with an immigration consultant at Alghoul Law and Associates. They explained to me the international study program leading to permanent residency through the Manitoba MPNP. Also I received advice on the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Business program. Consultation was FREE and Alghoul team was very friendly and knowledgeable.
