Child custody and guardianship are the parent’s duty to take care of the kid, and legal terms which are used to describe the legal and practical relationship between a parent and his or her child, for example the right to make choices for the kid.

Instead of a parent having “custody” of or “accessibility” into a kid, a child has become said to “dwell” or have “contact” with a parent. For a discussion of the international nomenclature that is new, see parental duty.

Home and contact problems generally arise in proceedings including divorce (dissolution of marriage), annulment and other legal proceedings where kids may be involved. In most authorities the problem of which parent the child will live with is determined in accordance with the needs of the child standard.

Family law proceedings which involve issues of contact and dwelling often create the most acrimonious disputes. While most parents resort to mediation to settle a dispute and join forces when it comes to sharing their children, not all do. For those that participate in litigation, there appear to be few limitations. Court filings quickly fill with mutual accusations including sexual, psychological, and physical abuse, parental alienation syndrome, brain-washing, sabotage, and exploitation. It is these infrequent yet challenging custody battles that become public via the media and occasionally distort the public’s perceptions so the issues appear more prevalent than they are and the answer of the court seem inadequate.

In some areas, courts and legal professionals are starting to make use of the term parenting schedule instead of custody and visitation. As an example, younger kids want not longer, more regular time with parents, whereas adolescents and older children may demand less frequent shifts yet longer blocks of time with each parent.
