Custody is often times the most difficult and “gut wrenching” aspect of any separation. The court has divided custody into two different types of child custody. There is legal custody and physical custody.
Legal custody is a right to make major decisions affecting the best interest of a minor child. These decisions generally address medical, religious, and education interests, and access to various information.
Physical custody is the actual physical responsibility and control of a child.
The court utilizes many factors in order to analyze the best interest of a child. These factors are weighed by the court in order to make a decision.
Custody is often times a very complex, difficult and emotional time. An attorney can assist in this process and help navigate the demanding waters of custody litigation.
