Should you and your spouse decide to separate or divorce, your children are likely to feel the most severe impact.

We will guide you through the steps necessary to secure a favorable arrangement for your children. Our legal team will help you care for your children, ensuring they emerge as successful as possible once your divorce is finalized.

Custody Arrangements Are Determined Based Upon The Following Criteria:

  • The healthcare needs of the child
  • The employment status of each parent
  • The personal wishes of the child or children
  • The relationship between the child and each parent
  • Any history of domestic violence on the part of either parents
  • The ability of each parent to provide for the child's emotional needs
  • The educational needs of the child and location of the child's school
  • The income of each parent and their ability to financially provide for the child
  • The health of each parent and disabilities that may interfere with caring for the child

Joint Physical Custody Versus Legal Custody

The court can design a child custody arrangement that caters first to the needs of the child, and second to the desires of each parent. Joint physical custody arrangements allow the parents to share custody, and often involve the child or children splitting time living with each parent. Joint legal custody arrangements give each parent the opportunity to have a say in the child's healthcare, education, and other major decisions. Many times, joint legal custody arrangements involve joint physical custody arrangements.

A parent who is granted sole legal custody of the child is the only one who is allowed to have a say in key elements of the child's well-being and upbringing. Physical custody negotiations do not always affect the rights of the parents to have a say in these items, and merely address the living situation of the children.
