Types of Custody and Visitation Arrangements

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.

With many years of experience helping thousands of clients, our attorneys can take on many other types of custody and visitation cases, including:

  • Move-Away and Relocation: You cannot take a child far away from an ex-spouse without making some sort of legal arrangement to account for resulting changes in visitation and timeshare.
  • Military Family Law: Service people and their spouses have special laws and regulations they must abide by in custody and other family law matters.
  • Modifications: Often, one spouse will seldom show up for scheduled visitation appointment -- it may be necessary to modify the custody and visitation agreement based on changes in circumstances for the parents. Such changes may involve a move out of the area, a remarriage, or other significant event.
  • Enforcement: If an ex-spouse refuses to live up to the provisions of a custody and visitation agreement, we can get a court order demanding compliance.
