Child Custody Laws in Turkey

Family Law & Divorce
Child Custody Laws in Turkey, Turkish Law Firm Istanbul, Turkey

Child custody can be the single most difficult issue in the divorce process. Assets are split in the petition as a one time agreement, but the impact of custody arrangements continues after the divorce is finalized in accordance to the details of the petition. It is a common tactic in divorce proceedings to point out the other party as an unfit parent. The purpose of this approach is to win custody of the children, limit visitation rights of the other party, protect the children from harm, or to make one's claim that they are the better party for which the court should assign custody. You must prepare yourself that you could be portrayed this way in the divorce proceedings. It is often said that all the "dirty laundry" comes out during divorce. Understand that this is a fight in which you must represent your best interests as well as the best interests of your children.

According to Turkish Family Law; there is only one type of conservatorship is available which is Sole Managing Conservatorship. It refers to the custodial parent who has actual possession of the child at all times, except during the time the other parent has visitation rights. There is no Joint Managing Conservatorship yet.
