Child Custody

Child custody proceedings are equally traumatic to that of a divorce. These proceedings are either part of the divorce or may stand alone in non-divorce settings. There are two forms of child custody. Physical custody refers to the parent that has the actual physical custody of the child. Legal custody refers to the parent that has decision-making authority on important decisions affecting the child's welfare. Both forms of custody may be sole or joint. The determination of who is the proper parent for custody involve the analysis of several factors set out by statute.
