Reclaim your care and contact rights to you child today and DIY today.
Every Parent has the right to have contact and access to his or her child. Parental Responsibilities and Rights benefits the child, just as much as it benefits the parents. However, what sometimes happens, is that one parent would act unreasonable. This unreasonableness would not be in the minor child’s best interest. For example, one parent would refuse the other contact to the minor child. If this happens, the law steps in because the minor child’s best interests would not be met by unreasonable refusal of contact. The High Court as upper guardian of all minor children, does not care about the parents. Their primary focus is what is in the minor child’s best interest. However, not all parents can afford lawyers. This is where our DIY service comes in.
