Applying for joint custody

Parents can submit an application for joint custody to the Guardianship Council on the island where the child is registered.

The Guardianship Council will process your request and draw up documentation to enable parents to submit the request for joint custody to the Court. Both parents must be present when submitting the application. This can be done during the Guardianship Council consultation hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 9:00 am and 11:00 am. If you cannot come to the Guardianship Council during consultation hours, you can make an appointment by phoning your local CN Guardianship Council.
