About Child Custody Issues

By Law Office of Rachel S. Cotrino, LLC  Feb. 24, 2011 12:40p

Whenever two spouses decide to end their marriage it is usually a difficult and heart-breaking decision. This can be compounded to a much more emotionally charged situation when there are children involved. A divorce can become extremely complex with the involvement of children due to the need to provide a healthy, safe and nurturing environment for the child. If the parents of the child are able to come to an agreeable solution regarding the custody of the child, it is one matter. Often however, these types of issues become irresolvable outside of court due to animosity between the spouses. If you are involved in a divorce and are concerned for the future of your child and your rights as a parent, contact a New Jersey divorce attorney immediately for legal guidance in how you can protect your rights.

One of the most important matters in child custody involves the difference between legal custody and physical custody of a child. Physical custody refers to the most commonly disputed rights regarding a child such as who the child will reside with on a day-to-day basis. Legal custody involves who has the right to make important decisions about the child's life, health, education and other matters, as well as the right to access information about these issues. All custody issues tend to be extremely complicated due to disputes between parents.
