Are you going through a dispute with your child’s other parent? Do you think that your child’s other parent is treating your child abusively or unfairly?

Child custody rights are very important in situations where a child’s parents have split up. The two common types of child custody arrangements are sole custody and joint custody. If one party has sole custody, then he or she has the legal right to make decisions that affect the child’s welfare, education, and overall lifestyle. In a joint custody arrangement, then both parents have the right to make decisions that will impact their child’s future. Often, joint custody agreements also divide the time the child spends with each parent equally. If there is only one custodial parent, the non-custodial parent may often only have limited visitation rights or may be restricted from seeing the child at all.
