Dealing With Access to Children
In Shang & Co. we understand that it is very important for non-custodial parents or parents who are not staying with their children, either before, during, or after divorce to have adequate visitation (access) time with their children. This is not only to ensure the benefits of the parent but most importantly the children. Children should not be alienated from the other parent as this would adversely impact the wellbeing of the children unless such parent poses danger to the welfare and safety of the children. Then there is a need to obtain a protection order and/or supervised access against such parent.
In Shang & Co. we prioritize the best interest and welfare of the children and work with our client to achieve a well-balanced co-parenting schedule in ensuring both parents are able to execute their parental obligations and the children are able to grow in a healthy environment. A divorce between parents should not burden the children in any way.

The rights to access children should not be confined to parents but also to grandparents and other relatives of the children. No parents shall alienate children from their relatives. A divorce between parents does not mean cutting-tie between the children and their relatives.
