Waldorf Child Custody Lawyers

Our Family Law Attorneys Can Help

Divorce is a complicated and painful process for both spouses. When a couple has children, it can be even more difficult. Before the divorce is finalized, you must establish who the children will primarily live with and how parenting time will be split.

Types of Custody

There are two types of custody: physical and legal. Typically, one parent is given physical custody of the child, meaning the child will spend the majority of his or her time with this parent. However, in some cases, parents are granted split custody, meaning the child will spend at least 35% of his or her time with each parent.

Legal custody is the right of a parent to decide long-term plans and decisions for the child’s life, such as education, religious upbringing, discipline, and medical care. Both parents can have legal custody of a child even if one parent has sole physical custody.

When determining custody, the judge will rule in favor of what’s considered to be in the child’s best interest. In some cases, a judge can decide that sole physical and sole legal custody belong to one parent because the other poses a threat to the child’s well-being.
