Beach Haven Child Custody Lawyer
When couples with children divorce, child custody is often the paramount issue at hand. There are two separate and distinct types of child custody; legal and physical. Physical custody deals with where the children reside, while legal custody deals with the decisions made concerning the child's upbringing such as religious affiliation, education and medical treatment. Within the realm of legal custody are joint legal custody and sole legal custody. Joint legal custody means that post-divorce both parents jointly share in any decisions made regarding the health and welfare of the children. On the other hand, sole custody is awarded when it is deemed that one parent is unfit to make decisions in the best interest of the child. Thus, one parent alone is responsible for making major decisions for the benefit of the child. The attorneys at Villani & DeLuca, P.C. have years of experience navigating the nuances of each and every child custody case. Let them help you and your children achieve the best possible outcome.
