Child Custody When Parents Don’t Communicate

A recent decision of the Family Court decided that it was not in the best interests of a child for her parents to have joint responsibility for reaching decisions about major long-term issues with respect to the child. The decision that parents do not share responsibility for a child goes against the usual presumption, but is not entirely unusual. In cases where a court is satisfied that parents ‘just cannot and will not be able to’ jointly make decisions for their child or children, sole parental responsibility will be conferred on one parent or the other.
