What Is Access?
Access is the term used to describe a parent’s right to visit, be visited by, and make inquiries about the welfare, health, and education of a child. This is clearly defined in Section 20 of the Children’s Reform Act. Sometimes referred to as visitation, access may be granted to a parent who does not have custody of his or her child, or an “access parent.”
Parental visitation rights may arise as an issue to be resolved in a:
- Parental relocation; or
- Paternity dispute.
