Children’s Right to Contact with Parents (Access Rights)

Access rights include the right of the child to maintain a personal relationship and direct contact with any parent, including the right of both parents to take the child away for a specified period of time to a place other than the child’s residence. Access rights also apply to the child’s siblings and grandparents, as well as other people with whom the child has lived together for a long time.

Example: The father and mother of the child are divorced and cannot agree on the frequency of meetings with the child.
