This is something that is decided in the court system but when you have an attorney, it can also help things to be ironed out between the adult parties.

Joint Custody

There are many different types of custody but the legal term known as joint custody is when both parents or a parent and a guardian share the responsibilities of raising the children after a separation or divorce takes place. Although joint custody may provide both parents with a degree of decision-making abilities, there is also likely to be a primary custodian.

Sole Custody

There are times when the courts decide it is in the best interest of everyone involved, including the children, that only one of the parents or a legal guardian be given sole custody of the child or children. This is something that must be decided in the courts and sometimes, it requires a legal battle if the other parent contests the decision. It is important to have legal advice and counsel during this time because it can be a difficult situation.


When child custody is being decided or after it has been determined, one of the parents is likely to be the custodial parent and the other parent, known as the noncustodial parent, will be given visitation rights. In most cases, the parents can work out the details of the visitation in their own agreement but if they are unable to agree, that it may be necessary for the court system to get involved.

Child Support
