Child custody is one of the most divisive and emotional issues in family law. When two spouses separate, a family lawyer works with each parent and the court to determine what custody arrangement is in the child’s best interest. Sole custody is an arrangement wherein only one parent retains legal and/or physical custody of a child. The child will live with the parent who has been granted physical custody, while the other parent is usually entitled to visitation privileges. Sole legal custody means that a single parent has the right to make decisions about religion, education, and medical care.
