 When You No Longer Live Together as a Family

If you have a child with another person, you both have rights and responsibilities to the child. This includes having the right to spend time with the child and be involved in decisions about the child’s life. If you and the child’s other parent are no longer living together, you both need to decide how these rights and responsibilities will continue when you no longer live together as a family. The legal terms for these rights and responsibilities are “custody” and “access".
