Child Custody

Cases involving child custody are those that arrange where children will live and who (which parent) which is called residential custody, and who will control the important aspects of those childrens’ lives, including education, health, religious training, extracurricular activities, and more which is called legal custody. Legal custody and residential custody are not the same set of issues. The courts always act in what they believe is the best interest of the children in deciding custody matters including legal and residential custody.
