Child Custody

Child Custody Lawyer

child custody lawyerChild custody cases are a complex area of law. The guardian with legal custody has the right to make important decisions about a child’s care in areas like school, medical care and religious upbringing. If a judge grants joint legal custody, the parents make major decisions about the child together. It does not matter which parent the child lives with – both parents must agree on the decisions together. If the judge gives one parent sole legal custody, only one parent has the right to make major decisions for the child. Whoever has physical custody – also known as residential custody – is responsible for the actual physical care and supervision of a child. If a judge grants joint physical custody, the child lives with each parent for an equal amount of time. If a judge grants sole physical custody, the child lives with this adult more than 50% of the time and this person is the custodial party. The noncustodial party will often have visitation rights that may be subject to conditions.
