Finding the Best Custody Arrangement for Your Family

If you are involved in a custody dispute or custody is a contentious issue in your divorce, it is important to hire a skilled attorney with specific experience in child custody cases. Our lawyers have handled numerous child custody cases in courts throughout Eastern Massachusetts.

Custody arrangements generally include:

  • Physical Custody – This determines where the children will reside.
  • Legal Custody – Legal custody gives one or both parents the right to be involved in major decisions, such as where the children will be raised and where they will go to school.
  • Joint Custody – Both parents share custody, although the time each spends with the children may not be equal.
  • Sole Custody – One parent has been designated to have legal custody, physical custody, or both. When one parent has sole custody, the other may be granted visitation.

Generally, courts in Massachusetts recognize the importance of children spending time with both parents. Therefore, as long as it is consistent with the best interests of the children, parenting time will be awarded to each parent, even if the time with each parent is not equal.

Modifications to Custody Orders

Child custody agreements should suit the family’s needs. When circumstances change, custody orders may need to be modified. If there has been a substantial change in circumstances, it may be possible to petition the court for modification of the existing custody order. Our attorneys assists clients with child custody modifications.
