The most highly contentious family law matters are the ones that involve children. The parents' ability to bond and support their child is an important part of a child's growth and development.

Child custody and visitation agreements are uniquely tailored to each family's situation. The agreement can vary depending on whether the parents have sole or joint custody, physically or legally. Physical custody is in regard to where the child lives. Legal custody refers to who has the right to make the decisions when raising the child.
Typically, parents choose to have joint physical and legal custody. Often one parent will have primary physical custody of the child, while the other parent has visitation rights. Deciding which parent is the primary custodian is determined by whether it is in the best interest of the child. Several best interest factors include:
- Psychological and physical capabilities of each parent
- Character and reputation of each parent
- Preference of the child
- Proximity of the parent's homes
- Financial status of each parent
We will work hard to protect your interests in child custody matters so that you can preserve your relationship with your child. At times, one or both parents' situation may change over time, which would require a change in the child custody and visitation agreement.
