Debate on parental authority in Quebec

Protecting your family's interests

Parental authority is a delicate and often emotional issue in Quebec family law cases. It’s a question of determining which parent will have the right to make important decisions concerning the child’s education, health and general well-being. At Avocats de famille, we understand the issues surrounding parental authority and are committed to working with you every step of the way to ensure that your family’s interests are protected.

Parental authority in Quebec is governed by the Civil Code of Quebec. It is based on the principle that each parent has rights and duties towards their child, whether they are married or not. This means that both parents have, by default, joint authority over their child and are expected to make decisions together.

However, in the event of disagreement or complex situations, the courts may be called upon to rule on the question of parental authority. They will then make a decision based on the child’s best interests, taking into account various factors such as the child’s needs, parental abilities, the relationship between the child and each parent, and other relevant factors.

At Avocats de famille, we’re here to help you navigate this complex legal landscape. Our experienced lawyers have a solid understanding of the nuances of Quebec provincial legislation and are committed to vigorously defending your rights and those of your child.
