Making Decisions and Spending Time with Children
What is decision-making responsibility?
This is the right to make important decisions about how to care for and raise a child. For example, to make decisions about:
- health care
- important extra-curricular activities
Decision-making responsibility can be divided in a few ways:
- one parent has all the decision-making responsibility,
- 2 or more parents share decision-making responsibility, or
- different parents are responsible for different areas. For example, one parent makes decisions about health and another parent makes decisions about religion.
