Child custody comprises both legal and physical custody. Legal custody refers to a parent’s authority and responsibility for making major decisions regarding the child’s health, education and welfare. Physical or residential custody refers to where the child lives. Attorney Kisha Hebbon has more than a decade of family law experience and can counsel you on each aspect of child custody matters, including:
In any custody proceeding, the court is bound by law to treat the rights of both parents equally. Still, men sometimes face ingrained biases when courts review parenting plans. Our firm takes a special interest in fathers’ rights cases and works tirelessly to ensure that paternal bonds remain strong.
Whether a divorce has recently occurred or several years have passed, a custodial parent may be compelled to move to a distant location. These situations can be highly volatile, and courts look at a wide range of factors to determine if a custody arrangement should be modified to accommodate a move. As always, judges make their decisions based on what is in the best interests of the child, which can include of a review of the reason for the relocation, the relationship between the parents, and the child’s preference.
