Divorce can be a stressful, and more often than not, messy process for all involved.


When children are involved, divorce matters become even more complicated.

First, it is important to understand which type of child custody you are seeking.

Legal Custody: Gives you the right to make decisions regarding the child or children.

Physical Custody: The child or children live with you.

Sole Custody: The child or children live with you and you have the right to make legal decisions.

Joint Legal Custody: Both you and the child or children’s other parent has a say in decisions.

Joint Physical Custody: The child evenly splits time between both parents.
