Legal Custody, Physical Custody And Visitation
Parents may reach agreements concerning child custody and visitation. When parents are unable to reach an agreement, it becomes a matter for the court.
The court may order that one parent have sole legal custody of a child, meaning that one parent has the authority to make decisions concerning the health, safety and welfare of a child. The court may also order that parents have joint legal custody, meaning that both parents share in making such decisions.
A court also has authority to determine which parent will have physical custody of a child. Physical custody concerns where a child resides. The court may award one of the parent’s sole physical custody, or the court may award each of the parent’s joint physical custody. Even in cases in which one parent is awarded sole physical custody, the court will typically award the non-custodial parent visitation time to maintain a strong and active relationship with the minor child or children.
Protecting Your Rights And Your Family
We are sensitive to the impact of custody disputes on children. We know from experience that many custody disputes can be resolved by negotiation and mediation. We also understand that even the most well-intentioned parents can have honest disputes about what is best for their children. When custody disputes are not resolved by negotiation and mediation, we are fully prepared to provide the strong advocacy our clients require in the courtroom. You can rely on us to protect your rights.
