Understanding Child Custody

Sole physical custody is rarely awarded to a parent unless he or she can show cause such as serious drug use or child abuse. It is common for a  court to award primary physical custody to one parent and partial physical custody (visitation) to the other parent.

 

The Pennsylvania family courts have become more and more progressive, fathers are obtaining shared physical custody in many cases. There is a presumption that dads deserve equal time if they have been actively involved in raising the child.

 

Disputes arise when a parent asserts primary custody without a court order and tries to limit the other parent's access to the child. If parents cannot agree on how to split parenting time, attorney Madsen is prepared to litigate a favorable outcome.

 

Legal custody refers to decisions about the child's schooling, health care, religious upbringing and general welfare. In most cases, both parents will share legal custody.  While sole physical custody is rare, sole legal custody is an even more unlikely outcome in child custody litigation.

 

A parenting plan refers to the day-to-day scheduling of the co-parenting arrangements and, in some cases, which parent will make decisions regarding certain aspects of the child’s life. We can help negotiate the calendar of weekends, overnights, vacations and holidays, as well as pick-up times and other day-to-day details. We work to make the plan clear and enforceable while encouraging communication and flexibility.
