Gillette Child Custody Lawyer
Protecting Your Rights as a Parent
Going through divorce is hard on all members of the family, especially the children. Unmarried parents may also deal with messy custody battles which can affect the children. At Steven Titus & Associates, P.C., we are here to guide you through the steps of establishing child custody while seeking to make the process as peaceful as possible for you and your children. We provide individualized attention and prioritize your family's needs.
Types of Child Custody in Wyoming
In order to understand what to expect out of your child custody case, it is important that you understand the types of child custody. Although many different types of arrangements can be made, depending on your wishes and the judge's decision, there are two main types of child custody.
The two main types of custody are:
- Physical custody: This refers to where the child will live, whether in both homes or exclusively in one home. In joint physical custody situations, the child will have set time periods where they live in each home.
- Legal custody: This refers to which parent will make decisions about the child's life and future. These include spiritual or religious decisions, medical decisions, and educational decisions. The judge can give this decision-making power to one parent but typically orders both parents to share legal custody.
Drafting Workable Visitation Agreements
In addition to a custody agreement, a visitation plan will need to be worked out to allow the noncustodial parent to spend time with the child. This may include weekends, nights, or specific holidays and vacations.
We understand just how important it is to remain close with your child, and we urge you to make decisions which will protect their best interests. Our Gillette family law attorney and team are here to provide you with compassionate support and counsel to protect your parental rights and the relationship you have with your child.
