Becoming a Parent

Parental Authority

As parents, you have rights and responsibilities toward your minor child. Primary among these are to provide for the child’s education, feed the child, see to the health and safety of the child and choose his or her school.

You continue to exercise your parental authority even if you and your spouse separate; you continue to do so jointly in the case of shared custody.
