Suit Affecting Parent/Child Relationships (SAPCR)
You’ve decided to part ways with the other parent, but you still want the best for your children. You want to make sure they have access to superior child care and health care—you also want to make sure you have legal and physical custody. To ensure this, you should file a Suit Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship, more commonly known as a SAPCR.
If you have a child, and you are not married to the parent of that other child, you are quite simply playing with fire until you get a Court order outlining the rights each party enjoys. This is particular true for fathers, who may not even be legally considered the father without a Court order.

Child custody is one of the most important and emotionally difficult issues in family law. It is important to know the complexities of any child custody order. Experience is crucial because these issues can frequently be difficult to modify once ordered. Beyond a possession schedule, it is crucial that each of the following aspects are considered:
- Each parent’s legal rights and duties concerning the child
- What geographic area the child will live in
- Who will pay child support and child’s expenses
- Who will pay the child’s health insurance and any unreimbursed medical expenses
- How major decisions affecting the child will be made
In high-conflict child custody cases, it is important to understand that there are no one-size-fits-all strategies. Each individual case requires a carefully tailored approach highlighting its strengths and minimizing its weaknesses. All factors must be taken into considering, including family violence, possible neglect or endangerment, special needs of a particular child, and mental health impact.
An SAPCR is a type of court proceeding that relies on a judge to order:
- Child custody
- Child visitation
- Child support
- Medical support
