COVID-19: Your safety is our priority. Amidst the COVID-19 outbreak, we are doing our part to keep our clients and team members safe and healthy. We are still open and accepting new cases everyday. However, during this time we will not be accepting drop offs and pickups from any of our Firm locations. The wheels of justice are still moving, but you can stay home while we fight for you.
When parents no longer live together, either party can file for custody of the child – either joint custody or sole custody.
The issue of residential placement also needs to be determined. Based on the best interests of the child, the court determines where the child should reside. This could result in shared residential placement, also known as shared custody.
In making a determination of sole custody, the court must determine that the parties can’t work together, or that the child’s best interests are serviced by a single decision maker for the child.
