One of the most challenging and difficult aspects of divoce is negotiating the custody of the children. Both parents want to be involved in the lives of their children as much as possible, but that may be difficult once the parties have separated or divorced. As an experienced Towson Child Custody Lawyer, David Silverberg, will represent you in your child custody case.
Legal Custody and Physical Custody
Both parents want to be involved in the lives of their children as much as possible, but that may be difficult once the parties have separated or divorced.
Taylor vs. Taylor defines the difference between legal custody and physical custody.
Legal child custody involves the decision-making process for long range matters such as health care, education, religious upbringing and other issue of a similar nature. These decisions will be made jointly, unless the court orders or the parties agree to sole legal custody.
Physical custody or child access involves where the children spend their time.
Taylor not only defines legal and physical custody, but also sets forth guidelines for the court to consider when custody of children is an issue. Those guidelines include:
- The ability of the parents to communicate with each other
- The ability of the parents to reach joint decisions
- The benefit to the children
- The willingness of each parent to share legal custody and/or physical custody
- The fitness of each parent
- The geographical location of the parties to each other and other considerations.
The ultimate test in all custody cases is what is in the best interests of the child or children. The application of this test to the facts of each individual case is often difficult.
