It is important to know that these cases do not have to end up in front of a judge. If it is possible to reach an agreement with your former partner, we can help you do that. When that can’t happen, the court will have the final say. They will look at a number of factors when deciding on the terms of your custody agreement. The relationship between each parent and the child, the location of the child’s school and the ability to care for the child are among the most important.

There are many different forms of child custody and visitation schedules, and they are unique to your situation. Joint custody involves time with both parents, where each has a say in medical and educational decisions for the child. Sole custody is when one parent has the responsibility of the child and their well-being. While many assume the mother will automatically get custody, that is not always the case. It depends on the specifics of your circumstances. We can discuss all of the options you are facing.
