Divorce is a common family law matter, and because divorce represents the dissolution of a legal contract, it is a complicated legal issue. While your divorce will not follow exactly the same course as anyone else’s, the basic components of divorce do not vary, including (as applicable):
One of the primary components of family law is child custody. Child custody concerns can pop up for divorcing parents, for parents who are divorced and need a child custody modification, and for parents who were never married to begin with. Child custody matters divide into issues regarding physical custody and legal custody. Ultimately, if you and your children’s other parent can find middle ground regarding your child custody arrangements, you will not need the court to intervene on your behalf.
Legal custody determines who will be making foundational decisions on behalf of the children, including regarding such matters as the following:
You and your children’s other parent can make these decisions together (joint legal custody), one of you can make them on your own (sole legal custody), or you can split them up between the two of you.
Physical custody determines who your children live with and according to what parenting time schedule (also known as a visitation schedule). The court’s goal is to keep both parents in their children’s lives (to the extent possible), so it is rare for a parent not to be awarded some form of parenting time.
