Modern Approach to Parenting After Separation in Surrey.

At Dreyer and Associates, we understand the complexities of parenting issues in the context of separation or divorce in Surrey. Moving away from traditional terms like “custody” and “access,” which often imply winners and losers in parenting, we embrace the more collaborative terms used in the provincial Family Law Act, such as “guardianship,” “parental responsibilities,” and “parenting time.” This approach aligns with our commitment to a more constructive and child-focused method of handling parenting issues in Surrey.

Guardianship and Parental Responsibilities in Surrey

In Surrey, guardianship involves rights and duties towards the children in one’s care. Typically, a child’s parents are the guardians, but there are situations where non-parents, such as family members or friends, may seek guardianship. Guardians are responsible for major decisions in a child’s life, including education, religious upbringing, and extracurricular activities. Our team at Dreyer and Associates provides guidance and legal support for guardianship and parental responsibility matters in Surrey.

Parenting Time and Contact in Surrey

Parenting time refers to the period a guardian spends with a child, during which they are responsible for the child’s day-to-day care and decision-making. For those in Surrey who are not guardians but seek to maintain a relationship with a child, we can assist in obtaining “contact” – a legally recognized time with the child. Our focus is always on the best interests of the children involved.
