Child Custody Cases

When a child is involved in a divorce between their parents, it can complicate matters extensively. The legal, emotional and financial ramifications of child custody are enormous, requiring the parents to determine the best agreement for their situation, or the court to decide what is in the best interests of the child. Whether the child's parents are involved in an uncontested divorce or a contested divorce, the issues regarding custody of the child can become extremely heated and unfriendly if not handled correctly. If you have children and are involved in a divorce or may soon be involved in a divorce, the future of your child will be hanging in the balance. A Jacksonville divorce attorney can help you find an agreement that ensures the safety and health of your child, while also working to keep the situation between both spouses as relatively friendly as possible so that there are no extra complications.

Child custody matters differ depending upon the type of custody granted and how the situation will eventually work out with visitation and child support. The main types of custody are legal custody, physical custody, sole custody and joint custody. If granted legal custody, the parent will have rights to make decisions regarding the child's upbringing. Physical custody pertains to whom the child actually lives with. Sole custody means that one parent has physical and legal custody of the child, as opposed to joint custody in which both parents have rights to equal time with their child.
