Allocation of Parental Responsibilities

Allocation of Parental Responsibilities (APR) case could be a part of a divorce proceeding if the child(ren)’s parents are married. Alternatively, an APR case isbrought by filing a petitioner for APR in the country where the child resides. The latter situation may apply to a parent of the child(ren) or a non-parent, whether related to the child(ren) or not. To commence an APR case by a non-parent, that person must have had physical care and custody of the child(ren) for over 182 days and the action must be commenced within 182 days after the termination of such physical care. An APR case may also be brought by a person who was granted custody of a child or who has been allocated parental responsibilities through a juvenile court order. Filing of an APR case triggers the issuance of a temporary injunction and both parties are to comply with it and follow the procedure leading up to the hearing.

“I met Michael through his website. He was unique in that he very clearly stated his value proposition as a family attorney. At the same time he laid out that if you wanted to have him give you an assessment of how he could help it would require a segment of time that he would need to charge for. That unique honestly, compared to offerring free evaluation, that would not have the same value, is the same honestly and integrity he employed towards navigating my issues. That seems to be a rare trait in Family law.”
