Child Custody

There are two types of Child Custody in North Carolina.

Physical Custody is literally where your children are physically living—just like it sounds. Physical Custody can be defined in many ways and may vary from family to family. There is no standard parenting schedule. Consider your children’s needs and routines that have been established for them. Consider your roles in their lives. “Every other weekend” may not work in your family. Our law firm is happy to explore these options with you.

Legal Custody is who makes decisions for your children. If your oldest child needs braces or you have decided to change your family’s religious preference, can you make that decision for your children without the other parent’s consent? This type of decision-making power, along with issues such as which parent will decide the children’s educational future is known as legal custody.

In the course of your life, you have probably heard a lot about “joint” vs. “sole” custody. These terms can be confusing for even the most advanced litigant, and as with most things in family law, there is no set legal definition for either of these terms. However, there are certain standards by which an experienced family law attorney can help guide you.
