There are several types of cases in which child custody and parenting time must be decided. The most typical of these are divorce actions: however, legal separations, custody actions, and paternity cases also deal with these bedrock issues. Custody and parenting time are not written in stone and are subject to modification or change upon a showing of proper cause or a change in circumstances.
Custody can refer to both legal (the parent’s ability to decide how the child is raised) and physical (the time the child spends with the parent) rights.
It is the court’s duty to award custody and parenting time based on the child’s best interests. It is your attorney’s duty to protect your rights and the rights of your child by presenting all evidence to the court so a just outcome can be achieved.
