Navigating Custody Issues

Child custody issues are separated into two types:

  • Legal custody: This will determine who makes critical decisions such as education, religion, health care and other matters involving your children.
  • Physical custody: This will determine where the child holds primary residence. The noncustodial parent is generally granted visitation by the court.

In North Carolina, often parents will share legal custody; the parents are strongly encouraged to have agreement on custody issues in lieu of a judge's involvement. Most of the time, a child is best served by maintaining a meaningful relationship with both parents. We take the time to walk you through the law. We want you to understand all of your options such as what is possible and what is realistic for your personal situation involving custody and visitation.
