Deciding What’s Best for Your Child
Many family law issues deal with child custody and visitation matters, either during the pendency of a divorce, between parties who have never been married, or with respect to a post-decree matter in which custody or visitation disputes that arise after an order has already been put in place. Some issues that may arise in child custody and visitation are emergency custody orders, temporary custody issues, guardianship, adoption and post-decree modification of a shared parenting plan or custody agreement.
When determining custody for your child, you and your spouse must come to an agreement regarding the two different types of custody:
- Legal custody refers to the ability of the parent to make decisions regarding medical care, education, religion, and other matters.
- Physical custody refers to where the child lives and spends their time.
The parents will then either have joint custody, in which they share the legal and physical responsibilities of the child, or one parent will have sole custody and the other non-custodial parent will have visitation rights. If you and your spouse are unable to come to an agreement regarding these arrangements, the courts will decide for you.
