Skilled Child Custody Attorney Serving San Marcos, CA
Different types of custody arrangements can be chosen to serve the interests of the child and family. Family law courts require that such agreements put the child’s well-being as the highest priority. Call San Marcos Attorney Carnohan to discuss possible custody provisions:
Joint Legal Custody: If both parents want to be involved in making decisions regarding the child’s healthcare, education, or other important matters in the child’s life, they may opt for joint legal custody arrangements.
Sole Legal Custody: When one of the parents is deemed unfit, the court will grant decision-making rights and sole legal custody to the other parent.
Joint Physical Custody: To arrange for each parent to have an equal amount of time with their child, joint physical custody will be chosen. This may necessitate the paying of child support by one of the parents.
Sole Physical Custody: This means the child would live full-time with only one of the parents. Usually, a sole physical custody arrangement includes visitation for the other parent. The parenting plan will specify the terms of the visitation.
If one parent is deemed unfit for child visitation after the original court orders have become final, the orders can be changed. This may mean supervised visits will be allowed. Such changes can be modified again in the event that the parent is later found to be fit for visitation.
