Whenever there is a breakdown in a relationship, regardless of whether the parties are married or not, access invariably becomes a contentious issue. Even the most amicable of break-ups can result in bitter disagreements as to who gets to see the kids and when.

Access with a child is the right to visit and spend time with the child. This can be a weekly or daily matter or may only occur during holiday periods if parents live far apart.

The paramount consideration when dealing with for access, like all proceedings involving children, is the welfare of the child. Access, it should be noted, is the right of the child to spend time with their parent.
