Hi, I am happy to help you with your enquiry today.
There are no set rules on how much a father is entitled to see his child after separation. The law recognises that each case is different, and each family may create their own arrangements to suit them.
However, some factors that are usually taken into consideration in making these arrangements are: (1) the age of the child; (2) the distance of the homes of the separated parents; and (3) the availability of the parents (their time and workload).
However, if the parents are not able to agree on a fixed child care arrangement, a family mediator is a good option to help reach a fixed arrangement for. A court order may also be obtained, however it is usually resorted to only after family mediation has been conducted.
