The Termination of Relationships and Ancillary Matters Part 6: Child Custody

Going through a divorce or ending a relationship is a difficult process. It’s even harder when children are involved. While the child’s best interest is usually put first, things can still happen. Arguments about where the child should live and with whom often ensue. This can lead to a custody battle with a court of law making the final decision.

In some instances of child custody, there isn’t a divorce or end to a relationship. One or both parents might be deemed unfit. There are a few different types of custody:

  • Sole Custody - Only one parent has full custody of the child.
  • Joint Custody - Parents share custody of the child.
  • Legal Custody - Allows parents to make decisions that are based upon the child’s well being.
  • Physical Custody - The determination of where a child lives and why.
  • Grandparent Visitation Custody - Grandparents seek custody of their grandchildren.

Of course, the situation at hand will determine which type of custody is granted. There are various factors that go into play when the court is deciding who should be awarded custody. Working out an agreement for visitation can be quite time consuming, as well.
