CHILD SUPPORT RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Mothers and fathers bring different, but equally important, qualities to support their children. In a divorce or non-marital situation, either parent may be granted custody of the child – or both may share equally in the physical custody and/or decision making responsibility.
Bringing a child into the world means making a commitment to care and support for him or her throughout childhood – ensuring the best possible environment to grow in. Children need safe places to live, nourishing food, education, and a solid foundation of values.
