Child Custody and Visitation
There are many types of parenting plan agreements that can be reached during the divorce process. Generally, child custody will involve physical custody and legal custody. Physical custody refers to where the children live, and legal custody refers to decisions made about the children's education, health care, religion and other issues. A common agreement results in one parent obtaining physical custody of the children, with the non-custodial parent obtaining visitation time. Legal custody is often awarded as joint custody, with both parents having input into important decisions. Of course, custody and visitation varies with each family. As your attorney, I devise the best course of action for you and the best interests of your children.
Can child custody and visitation be changed?
While my law firm certainly makes every effort to reach enduring custody agreements, the fact is that life can change. People move. Situations change. And sometimes it may be necessary to request a modification to the existing court order. Whether you are involved in a parental relocation, child relocation or want to contest a proposed modification, you can turn to the Law Office of Zoe Meigs, P.C. for help.
