For anyone getting a divorce, it is important to understand the different types of child custody. Our experienced family law lawyer can help you get the best arrangement of:
Legal custody, which gives a parent the authority to make decisions about education, medical care, health care, religious upbringing, and other matters
Physical custody, which details the co-parenting time each parent has with the children, which also affects child support
The court may also designate a primary custodial parent who may be entitled to receive child support.
It need not be as simple as designating one parent to fulfill both legal and physical custody. For example, many parents will opt for joint legal custody, allowing both parents to make all the important decisions in the lives of their children.
You can also have a shared parenting time or joint physical custody structure that enables each parent to have a relatively equal amount of time with his or her children. Our family law attorneys can help you devise the coparenting schedule that best meets you and your children's needs.
