An application for custody of children to a marriage can be made prior to or together with an application for divorce or judicial separation. There is a rebuttable presumption that a mother should have custody of a child who is below seven years old. When granting an order of custody, a court can also decide on the access period to be given to the parent who does not have custody of a child.
