Types of Custody Arrangements

Under the state law, the best interest of the child is the primary focus of family law cases involving custody and parenting time. This means that any ruling will ultimately be decided in favor of your child's well-being. You can negotiate these terms in an uncontested divorce or pursue litigation, depending on your situation.

Many factors will determine your child's best interest:

  • The age of your children
  • The wishes of your children
  • School and other activities

Different arrangements can be made to match your unique situation. The factors listed above will determine whether your children are best off spending equal time with each parent or would benefit the most from a sole custody situation. During an evaluation of your case, our firm can help determine which of the following arrangements is the most appropriate for your family:

Sole Custody
In a sole custody arrangement, only one custodial parent has custody. The other parent will likely be given visitation rights. This is not a very common type of arrangement because it limits the connection of one parent to his or her child.

Shared Custody
In shared custody, each parent has almost equal parenting time. This arrangement only works if both parties live in close proximity to one another. The purpose of this plan is to equally distribute the time that the children spend with each parent.

Joint Custody
Joint custody is the division of child-rearing tasks between both parties of the divorce. This arrangement places less emphasis on equal amounts of time with each parent than shared custody. With this type of custody, an alternating schedule between each parent will be given and one parent may have a much greater portion of time with child than the other parent.
