Child custody and right of access

The aim of the child custody is to secure the child's balanced development and welfare according to the child's individual needs, wishes and age.

Child custody should secure positive and close relationships for the child, especially between the child and his/her parents.

The custody and right of access agreements are confirmed by child welfare officers.
