Canadian and Alberta law presumes that both parents are equally capable of having custody of their children. In Canada courts keep in view the best interests of the child when making a judgement pertaining to child custody and access. There are a number of factors which a court must consider when deciding custody and access. Factors such as the age of the child, circumstances of the parents, and potentially the child's preferences, and many other factors need to be considered.
