Child Custody and Visitation
Divorce and family law proceedings bring several legal issues into play, particularly when children are involved. One of the most difficult aspects is working out a parenting plan (visitation rights and custody) and arranging schedules in the children’s best interests, while also accommodating the demands on parents’ lives.
A parenting plan establishes:
- Legal custody – deciding who makes the decisions regarding the health, welfare, education, and religious upbringing of the children
- Physical custody- deciding who the children live with, including providing for the child’s daily needs, food, shelter, clothing, transportation to school and social events
- Parenting time – determining the non-custodial parent’s appropriate time with the children
Options for custody include sole custody, joint custody, and rotating custody. We help you develop a sensible, workable parenting plan aligned with the best interest of your children.
