Elizabeth represented me over the past two years in a custody and visitation modification case. I was quite impressed with her ability to maneuver through what is sometimes a complex process that custody and visitation can be. What I was asking for wasn't unreasonable, and Elizabeth drove the point home to me that I was entitled to as much time with my son and my daughter as I could make possible. I'm not the easiest father to represent. But Elizabeth kept in the front of my mind what was really important and what could really make an impact on our case. Another lawyer might have just cut me loose. But Elizabeth kept me on point. If you are a parent and you want to spend as much time as you possibly can with your child(ren), give Elizabeth a call and tell her the facts of your case. She will listen, and then she'll go to work for you and get things done.
Tips & Advices
A child custody schedule pertains to visitation rights, and might go into great detail as a court-ordered breakdown of when a child lives with and spends time with each parent. It is not uncommon for child custody schedules to be broken down by the hour, established months in advance.
Primary custody is the classification for the parent with whom the child spends the majority of their time in unequal joint physical custody distributions.
The legal definition may vary somewhat by state, but joint custody generally refers to a dynamic in which both parents retain physical custody rights after a divorce. This typically means the child spends time at two homes and, technically, has two different addresses.
Yes, but in most states and jurisdictions, the “bar” for so-called abuse of discretion is high. In order to overturn a custody decision, the guardian in question must be proven to have violated specific terms of the agreement in a manner so egregious that the child was endangered or otherwise put at serious risk.
The foremost consideration is almost always a suitable living space for the child. Social services might inspect a home to ensure it meets certain standards for public health, in addition to providing a positive and loving environment. Beyond that, the court will look at the custodian in question’s less tangible connections with the child, particularly in third-party cases, to ensure they are providing the best possible care. Work history, income, personal health and any official legal records will all be taken into account. The opinions of the children, or child, also might be taken into account.
