What is Child Custody?

Child custody refers to the legal responsibility and authority parents or legal guardians have over a child, including where the child will live and how major decisions affecting the child’s welfare will be made. 

Child custody can be a complex matter, and various types of custody arrangements may apply based on the circumstances of each case:

Physical Custody: This determines where the child will live. In joint physical custody, the child spends significant time with both parents. In sole physical custody, the child primarily resides with one parent, often with visitation rights granted to the other.

Legal Custody: Legal custody involves decision-making authority regarding the child’s upbringing, education, healthcare, and other vital aspects of their life. Parents can share joint legal custody, making decisions together, or one parent may have sole legal custody.

Joint Custody: Joint custody arrangements involve shared responsibilities for both physical and legal custody. Parents collaborate in making decisions, and the child splits their time between the parents’ homes.

Sole Custody: In sole custody, one parent is granted exclusive physical and legal custody of the child. The other parent may have visitation rights but doesn’t share decision-making authority.

Child custody decisions are typically made based on the child’s best interests, considering factors such as age, relationships with parents, stability, and each parent’s ability to provide a safe and nurturing environment. 

Courts aim to ensure the child’s well-being and safety are the top priorities in any custody arrangement.

Working with an experienced child custody attorney who can help you navigate the legal complexities and advocate for your rights and your child’s best interests is essential.
