Understanding Child custody attorney Denton
When safe and appropriate, courts will typically advocate for both parents to be a strong presence in the lives of their children after a divorce or break up. This means while one parent may have primary physical custody, it is important for the noncustodial parent to have ample parenting time. As your legal counsel, we can help you understand these and other nuances of custody attorney. Our attorneys can advise on:
Physical custody: This refers to where the children will reside the majority of the time, but it can also refer to the amount of parenting time that each parent will receive.
Legal custody: This refers to the rights of each parent to make important decisions regarding the children’s medical care, education, activities and religious guidance.
Emergency motions: These can become necessary when one parent is keeping the other parent from seeing their children.
Child custody modifications: After the custody order is finalized, there are still opportunities to modify the terms of the order if one of the parents has experienced a significant change in circumstances, such as a relocation, onset or recovery from a chemical addiction or change in job schedule.
Relocations: The custodial parent cannot move with the children more than 100 miles away from the noncustodial parent, without the consent of the noncustodial parent. If conflicts arise, court intervention may be necessary to resolve this issue.
