Legal Vs. Physical Custody

There are two main forms of child custody that may be granted by the court. Legal custody refers to the right of the parent to make major life decisions on a child's behalf, such as those concerning medical care, education or religious upbringing. Physical custody is exactly what it sounds like, and refers to the primary residence where the child will be spending the majority of his or her time.

Legal custody may be granted to one or both parents. Physical custody is often granted to just one parent, although parenting duties may be as evenly split as possible. In some cases, custody may be awarded to parties other than the biological parents, such as grandparents. We can let you know what to expect regardless of the type of custody you are seeking.

The Best Interests Of The Child

The law requires the court to make custody determinations that are in the best interests of the child. The court applies a number of different factors when making this determination and its notion of what is in the best interests of your child may be wildly different than yours. It is our job to provide a steady hand to guide you through this process, bearing in mind that the court will attempt to reach a resolution that enables both parents to have some form of relationship with their child.
