Family Law Attorneys Seeking Justice for Your Case
Child custody can become a contentious issue in a divorce. Every parent has strong ideas about how his or her children should be raised and no one wants to sacrifice their time with their children. This can cause child custody to become a flashpoint in a divorce. We know from experience that effective advocacy on this issue can prevent unnecessary conflict and help our client secure the child custody agreements he or she needs.
Part of how we achieve our clients’ goals is by limiting the number of cases we take. We do not get overloaded, which enables every client to receive the full attention he or she deserves. We get to know our clients and their children so that we can help craft child custody agreements that are tailored to their real lives.
- Legal custody — This is the right to make decisions regarding religion, health care, education and other major life issues for your child. Although joint legal custody is granted in the vast majority of cases, it may not be appropriate in certain instances.For example, if a parent has abused or neglected the child, then the other parent may seek primary or sole legal custody to protect the child and his or her best interests.
- Physical custody — This refers to where the child lives or the number of overnights with each parent. The physical custody arrangement dictates how child support is calculated and the applicable worksheet. In most instances, the court will designate one parent as the primary physical custodian and the other parent as the secondary physical custodian and calculate child support pursuant to Worksheet A. In limited number of cases, the court may award shared physical custody which approaches an even split of time spent with the child and calculate child support pursuant to Worksheet B.
