Who should make decisions about your child
The first step is to think about who should make decisions about your child. As of March 1, 2021, the term custody has changed to decision-making responsibility. And in most situations, the term access has changed to parenting time.
Talk to your partner
You and your partner can try to agree on decision-making responsibility without going to court. Decision-making responsibility used to be called custody. You can talk to your partner on your own, with the help of someone you both trust, or with the help of a lawyer or mediator.
