Of all of the challenges that come with divorce and family law cases, addressing issues of child custody and visitation is often the most emotional and complex. You want to do what is best for your child. The problem is that the child’s other parent wants to do the same, but has different ideas of what exactly is best.

What Is Best for Your Child?
The court wants to see both parents playing a role in the child’s upbringing. This is almost always going to be the case. The more pressing questions are:
- Where is the child going to live? Are you planning on moving out of state?
- How will parenting time be divided? Will it favor one parent or the other?
- How do custody and visitation arrangements impact child support payments?
Before these questions can be answered, we need to get to know you and your child. We will want you to tell us about your situation and your goals. Only after we understand your situation personally can we put together a plan designed to get the results you need.
Child Custody and Visitation Terminology
There are a lot of terms thrown around in relation to child custody and visitation. You may hear about physical custody and legal custody, sole custody and joint custody, parenting time and shared parenting. In one way or other these all refer to the arrangements made between you and the child’s other parent to spend time with the child. We will explain the definitions, but more importantly, we will use the tools at our disposal to help you.
