Guiding Families Through Child Custody Disputes
Parents involved in child custody disputes often have difficulty looking at the situation from an unbiased perspective. Unless you’ve been through a child custody case before, the process can be a frustrating ordeal where it’s difficult to determine whether or not your voice is being heard. The court approaches these disputes with the goal of doing what is in the best interest of the children, not the parents. Without a strong legal team in your corner, your wishes may not have much influence on the court’s decision.
Elements Of A Child Custody Agreement
A child custody agreement establishes specific guidelines concerning physical custody, legal custody and visitation rights. Physical custody refers to the location where children live. In most custody agreements, parents share some degree of joint custody, but sole custody is not uncommon and third parties such as grandparents may also be part of the agreement. When sole custody is granted, the noncustodial parent is usually granted visitation rights.
Legal custody is the right to make life decisions for the children including educational, religious and health-related choices. Like physical custody, most parents share joint legal custody unless there are extenuating circumstances such as a history of domestic violence.
