The answer is yes. Having an attorney can dramatically impact whether or not the judge grants you custody of your children.

In a custody proceeding, there are different types of custody that the court can grant you.

Legal Custody

Legal custody is the ability to make decisions about your child’s health, education, and safety. This includes the right to decide where your child goes to school, receives health care or practices religion.

Physical Custody

Physical custody is the physical location of the child on a day-to-day basis. Parents with joint physical custody share the child 50%. This means that the child will reside with each parent 50% of the time. A parent that has the child more than 50% of the time has primary custody.

The parent that does not have primary custody usually has the right to visitation. The court will determine what visitation rights the other parent will have. The goal of the court is to allow both parents as much time to spend with the child as possible. However, the court is always guided by what the court believes will be in the best interest of the child.
