Legal And Physical Custody

There are a range of custody arrangements that can be made — but if the parties can't agree, ultimately the courts will make a decision based on the best interests of the children. While the courts will make a decision based on various legal factors, you need an experienced lawyer helping you throughout the process who can advocate your position, as well as evaluate how child support, visitation and other factors all play into custody arrangements.

Legal custody is a term used to describe who is able to make major decisions for the children. This means decisions about certain medical care, schooling, religious training, etc. Physical custody refers to where the children live. Parents could be awarded sole custody or joint custody. In situations where the children's safety or well-being is an issue, temporary custody may be awarded to one parent until a final decision is made.
