Helping You Understand the Court Process

As with any family law conflict arising from divorce, the courts will look at different factors within the family dynamic, in order to determine an appropriate child custody arrangement.

Parents can decide if they want a sole custody or a joint custody arrangement. Although both parents can make judgment calls when they are with their child for visitation, the more important decisions about the child’s healthcare, education, and religious upbringing can only be made by the custodial parent. If a child is old enough to decide which parent they want to live with, the court will strongly take the child’s preference into consideration.
