Child custody overview

What is Child Custody?

There are two types of child custody: Legal and Physical. Legal child custody refers to the legal rights to the child such as the right to get medical records. Physical child custody refers to who the child physically spends their time with. Primary physical child custody means the child spends 60% or more of their time with the primary physical custodian. Joint physical child custody means the child spends 40% or more of the time with a joint physical custodian.

How Does the Judge make a Child Custody Decision?

The Judge is supposed to use the “best interests” in determining child custody. This can mean different things to different Judges – that is why an experienced attorney is important in child custody cases.

What is the Lawyer’s Role in the Child Custody Process?

Why is an Experienced Lawyer Important to My Case?

Family law is full of traps and pitfalls for an attorney inexperienced in family law. Family law is comprised of its own statutes, cases, court rules, and standard operating procedures. In addition, each Judge has their own way of doing things. For example, some Judges will refuse to allow one side to speak in a motion hearing if no opposition was filled while others will allow this. Some Judges allow oral motions while others do not. Some Judges hold that certain “requirements” are binding while others believe they are discretionary. In short, one should want a lawyer experienced in practicing at Family Court on a daily basis.
