Monroe Child Custody Information

Legal and Physical Custody

Child custody is distinguished by two different types. These two types are legal custody and physical custody. Legal custody refers to the right of one parent to make large and significant decisions regarding the child's future. Some of these concern the child's education, medical care, and religious affiliations. The parent with legal custody can receive information from the school, doctors, and other institutions regarding the child.

Physical custody concerns the actual location that the child lives. You may run into the following difficulties concerning child custody and our Monroe divorce attorneys can continue to stand by your side throughout each situation:

Custody Modification
Child custody modification can take place in the event of a serious change in circumstances of one or both parents. The attorney will have to have enough evidence to prove that this modification would be in the best interest of the child, because this is the court's number one priority. Modifications may be granted if the custodial parent must move out of state, making visitation difficult, if one of the parents has a significant change in their work schedule, or if there are suspicions of domestic abuse of any kind.

Enforcing Child Custody Orders
If one parent attempts to interfere with the custodial orders, it can cause serious disruption to the children involved. The enforcement of parenting agreements can help a parent who may be denied access to their child, get this permission restored. A disruption of a parenting agreement can be handled by the family court system because it is treated like a civil matter. These issues are often caused by parental alienation. Some custody interferences may be more severe, such as parental kidnapping, and can lead to the involvement of criminal law authorities.
