He MUST first attempt mediation with his wife... via a Court approved mediator... they can be found here:
If the mediation is successful - great.. if not, he will obtain a certificate of attempted mediation... which he can use to accompany he application to the Court for child custody/parenting orders...
The application forms, etc for an application for child/custody.. parenting orders can be found on the Court website. Please advise if he needs assistance with this...
He should also consider a divorce and property settlement with his presumably ex-wife. Please advise if he needs assistance with this as well?
Kind regards, James
