How much time am I entitled to spend with my children?

The amount of time that children spend with each parent will depend upon a number of factors, such as the age of the children, the living arrangements and lifestyles of each of the parents. If you and your former partner have shared parental responsibility for the children, then the Court will consider whether there should be a shared care agreement. If that is not in the best interests of the children, or is not reasonably practicable for any reason, the Court will consider the children spending time with the other parent and the terms on which that should take place.
