An Introduction To Child Custody And Visitation Rights

Child custody can be allocated in a number of ways, with parenting responsibilities shared equally or set according to certain factors affecting the child's well-being. Most people are familiar with sole custody and joint custody, but custodial rights can be further divided into legal custody (the right to make decisions about the child's education, health care and religion) and residential custody (the actual living arrangements of the child and the rights and responsibilities associated with daily child care).

Visitation rights can be awarded to noncustodial parents, and sometimes to other family members, like grandparents. A visitation schedule will be set to govern the terms of visitation (e.g., how often the parent or relative can see the child) for the noncustodial parent or family member.

The Law Offices of Andrew L. Horberg, P.C., can handle all aspects of your custody, visitation or other divorce and family law legal matters, from initial negotiations and agreement drafting, to post-decree modification of custody and visitation arrangements and financial support.
