Child Custody Lawyer Near Wayne County, MI
Protect Your Parental Rights With the Help of a Custody Lawyer
When parents divorce, it can have a lifelong impact on their children. While you can no longer continue your relationship with your spouse, you most likely want to retain your relationship with your child and ensure that they are in the best situation possible. If the parents can’t agree amicably on a child custody and visitation arrangement, they will present their cases to a court and a judge will make the determination. Judges base this decision on a variety of factors. If you need an experienced child custody lawyer to help you negotiate a fair arrangement or represent you in litigation, call Artisan Legal Services, PLLC. A child custody lawyer can help you identify an arrangement that best suits your child’s needs, whether that means sharing joint custody with your ex or requesting sole custody. Artisan Legal Services, PLLC assists clients in Wayne County, MI and the surrounding areas.
Legal Custody Vs. Physical Custody and Sole Custody Vs. Joint Custody
There are two types of child custody. Physical custody is granted to the parent with whom the child will primarily live. Legal custody allows the parents to make important decisions on the child’s behalf regarding their medical care, education, living situation, religion, and more. Sole custody means that only one parent has custody of the child. Joint custody means that the two parents share custody.
Judges make custody determinations based on what they believe to be the best interest of the child. They will consider factors such as:
- Each parent’s relationship with the child up until the divorce
- Each parent’s income and living situation
- Any history of physical abuse or drug/alcohol problems
- In some cases, the child’s wishes
