Child Custody Litigation

Child custody determinations are among the most difficult and acrimonious of all court decisions. The results of a child custody case will have long-term consequences for everyone involved; it is common for these cases to be hotly disputed.

Determining Child Custody

In custodial disputes, the courts consider both legal and physical custody. Legal custody concerns the health, welfare and well-being of a child, i.e. the parent's right to make important decisions for the child's upbringing. Physical custody concerns the distribution of parenting time shared between parents. In either case, courts are most concerned with what is in the best interests of the child, as are most parents. When parents cannot come to an amicable resolution regarding the custodial arrangements for their children, it is imperative to have a resilient and trial-tested attorney to navigate the intricacies of a best interests evaluation, like the lawyers at Miller & Gaudio.

Within the realm of custodial disputes, beyond the common determinations regarding legal and physical custody and parenting time/visitation, parents may confront situations concerning relocation (both interstate and intrastate), religious upbringing, name changes and grandparent visitation.
