The child custody law works on the simplest terms by concluding that child custody should work in the ‘best interests of the child’. Child custody procedure prolongs into long periods of time where care is taken to justify the capability of each of the parent to raise the child and the compatibility between the child and each parent. The case that ensues from divorce and then the subsequent child custody issues is not an easy one and having an expert family lawyer such asThe Law Office of David A.

There can be different possibilities of child custody scenarios. The parents can choose to have a joint child custody which is further divided as joint legal custody and joint physical custody. While joint physical custody would just determine the amount of time spent by the child with each parent, joint legal custody would provide each of the parents to decide on the major decisions of the child’s life. Also, there are probabilities of sole legal custody and sole physical custody and the type of custody the parent decides should be conveyed to the lawyer to gear the case through the right course.
