what are the relevant legal references please
Hi thank you for your message, so in essence the default is that contact and custody will be arranged in accordance with the best interests of the child as per for children act 1989. This generally means a default position of shared custody if that is not practically possible then overnight stays and contact will he arranged. Weekends should be shared between the parents on an alternative weekends basis. I hope this helps, if you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
