Hence, at Thomas Law Group, PC., we provide dependable and sincere legal representation to get you the best possible result in your high-conflict child custody case.
The Different Forms of Child Custody
According to the law, Child Custody has several forms, although the two most common are: sole custody and joint custody. Sole custody means one parent gets physical as well as legal custody. While in Joint custody, both parents get the right to have a share in making decisions for, and spending time with, the child. However, shared custody is said to be a bit difficult for the child.
The court also allows periodical visitation rights to the parent who has not been awarded physical custody of the child; these visits take place in the parent's home who has not been given physical custody. However, the court might not grant any rights for visitation if there is fear of any physical harm or abuse in the parent's history. The court, instead of denying totally, might give supervised visitation charges.
The Attorney´s Role and Importance in Child Custody
Because of the complexity of child custody matters and the importance of the outcome, it is advisable to contact an attorney. The attorney will determine what’s best for the kids by consulting with other experts in the field. Moreover, he will help you collect and organize all the necessary information in an organized manner. To be successful in presenting an actual parenting plan, the attorney should try to make their clients understand that they should present themselves to be reasonable, articulate, flexible parents whilst not disturbing the court proceedings.
