Some parents cannot agree on custody and access rules and need a judge to check the child`s circumstances and make an order. When a judge makes custody and access decisions, the law requires him to make the decision based on the best interests of the child.

A lawyer can also tell you if there are facts that can convince a judge that the agreement needs to be amended or terminated. You should first see what your separation agreement says, that you have to do it if one of you wants to change it. For example, he might say that you should try mediation before going to court. Even if your agreement does not say so, you should try an alternative dispute resolution procedure before going to court.

When deciding what type of access rules you want for your child, you should think about what arrangements would allow them to work best.

Keep in mind that their schedules may change as children age and access arrangements may need to be flexible.
