Child Custody

There are four types of Child Custody in Canada.  Sole custody is when only one parent has custody of a child or children.  Joint custody is when both parents share custody responsibilities. Shared custody is similar to joint custody, but where each parent spends at least 40% of their time with the child.  Finally, split custody occurs where there is more than one child and each parent assumes custody for different children.  It is very rare in Canada for a court to recommend split custody.  In Canada, the parent with custody is the one with the responsibility for making decisions that affects the child, such as religion, education and medical decisions.
