However, if the mediation option is not satisfactory, be assured of our commitment to pursue your cause by taking your case to court. When child custody matters go through the court system, a judge may order one of the following types of custody arrangements:
Different types of child custody:
Sole custody is an arrangement in which a child lives with only one parent. The parent with whom the child lives has sole responsibility for the care of the child and can legally make decisions regarding how they are raised without consulting the other parent.
In shared custody agreements, both parents have custody of the child at different times and must discuss significant childcare decisions with each other.
When a couple is awarded joint custody, the child will live with one parent; however, both parents must have a say in how the child is raised.
If a couple has more than one child together, they may be awarded split custody of the children. Split custody means that at least one child will live with each parent. Split custody arrangements are rarely used in cases where there are young children. But once a child is 12 years or older, the court may consider their wishes when deciding on a child custody matter, and sometimes children wish to live with different parents.
