Parents can make informal arrangements regarding access and custody but if these arrangements break down they cannot be legally enforced. However, any written agreement between parents can be made a Rule of Court.
Any person being a Guardian of a child may apply to court for its direction on any question affecting the welfare of the child and the court may make any order that it considers proper. The court may by order give directions as it thinks proper regarding custody of the child and the right of access to the child by the child’s father or mother.
