Types of Child Custody

Sole custody and joint custody are two of the most common types of custody, but are not the only kinds. If you have physical custody, this means you have the right and responsibility to provide daily care for your child. Legal custody gives you the ability to take part in important decisions that affect the life of your child such as those dealing with religion, medical attention and education. We assist our clients to understand the different types of custody, how they work and how they may affect their lives for years to come.

The overriding factor in a matter of child custody will be what is in the overall best interest of the child. This is what the court will review in order to make their final determination. We invite you to use our understanding and experience to reach the agreements you desire on child custody.
