Our Child Custody Lawyers Representing Your Best Interests
Help from a Compassionate Attorney Protecting Fathers and Mothers Rights
The courts consider the child’s best interests in determining custody, including their physical, mental and moral welfare. The court has the option of granting custody to one parent or both in joint custody. The courts have no legal preference for custody, nor do they give one parent preference based on gender. If one or both of the parents files for joint custody, a plan must be presented to the court. The plan must include details regarding the following:
The court takes the plan into consideration and issues a final plan with appropriate changes deemed necessary for the best interests of the child. The court also has the option of rejecting a request for joint custody, particularly in the event where domestic violence or abuse has been perpetrated by one of the parties.
