Child custody has two components: legal and physical. Legal custody refers to the ability to make decisions regarding the child’s upbringing while physical custody refers to the child’s place of residence. In many arrangements, parents share legal custody while one parent has primary physical custody. In such cases, parents agree to a schedule that dictates the time both parents have with the child or children. Visitation schedules may vary according to the location of each parent and their respective schedules. Ms. Joffe can help you decide on and pursue the arrangements that are in the best interests for you and your child or children.
