Child custody and child support disputes can get complicated very quickly, especially when they follow a lengthy divorce case. It’s important to remember the court always rules in the child’s or children’s best interests. Randy Carroll Attorney at Law can help resolve custody and visitation disputes when both parents have conflicting claims. We will help you prepare for court and give you a better understanding of the factors the judge will consider when awarding custody. 

Types of Custody

Physical Custody- A parent awarded physical custody has the legal right to have a child live with him or her. Joint physical custody can be awarded if the child spends a significant amount of time with both parents. 

Legal Custody- A parent awarded legal custody has the legal right to make decisions about the child’s schooling, religious upbringing and medical care. If joint legal custody is awarded, the parents share the decision-making rights equally. 

Sole Custody- If a parent can be awarded sole physical or legal custody, or both, courts generally rule in favor of sole custody if one parent is deemed an unfit guardian. 

Joint Custody- Both parents can share joint physical or legal custody, or both. This arrangement requires a schedule agreed upon by both parents. If the parents can’t come to an agreement, the court can enforce an arrangement. 

Attorney Randy Carroll can work with you and the opposing parent to come to an agreement outside of court or represent your interests in court when an agreement cannot be reached. Call 336-278-1007 today to schedule a free consultation!
