Divorce is one of the most difficult situations in which a couple can find themselves. In Ontario, Canada, there are certain laws that pertain to child custody. If the marriage produced children, custody issues will arise during a separation or divorce. Generally speaking, the courts make decisions based on what is in the best interests of the child.
Factors that a court may review when making a decision regarding the custody of a child are:
- The love and emotional bonds between the child and each of the parents;
- The relationship that each parent has with the child;
