What You Need to Know about Complex Custody Cases

There are various types of custody recognized by the family courts. When considering divorce or going through the process of divorce, you and your spouse will need to decide how the custody of your child or children will be arranged.

The four types of child custody include:

  • Legal custody: This type of custody determines which parent has the right to make decisions regarding the child's education, healthcare, and other issues.
  • Sole legal custody: If sole legal custody is granted, only one parent has physical custody of the child and the sole responsibility to make decisions on behalf of the child.
  • Joint legal custody: Typically this is the scenario that the court favors if possible. Joint legal custody grants both parents decision-making rights as well as physical custody rights.
  • Physical custody: Physical custody determines who the child lives with.

Complex child custody cases refer to issues that do not result in an easily-determined shared parenting schedule. Whether due to drug abuse, child neglect or abuse, a criminal record, or another factor, Child Protective Services may be involved, and more intense legal issues may be present.
