Child custody is a major factor in a divorce
In most cases, it’s best to come to an agreement with your ex-spouse on child custody and visitation arrangements without going to court, but in some cases that is not possible. If you do end up in court, the judge looks for an arrangement that is in line with the children’s best interest by considering the fitness of the parents, the child’s current education and social situation, and, depending on age, the children’s preferences.
There are a number of different types of child custody arrangements, including:
- Joint custody. The most common form of custody agreement, joint custody allows both parents to make important decisions about their children’s future, including their education, religious activities and healthcare.
- Physical custody. When you have physical custody, it means that your children live in your home. In many cases, you can have joint physical custody, an arrangement whereby your kids live with your ex-spouse half time.
- Sole custody. In this form of custody, you are the only parent with whom your children live. Your ex-spouse may retain visitation rights, however.
Amanda Everett’s goal is to demonstrate to the court why you should retain custody of your children and receive child support from your ex-spouse when necessary. Whatever your objectives, she is with you throughout the divorce process. To learn more, visit the child custody FAQ page.
