Effective Counsel To Resolve A Child Custody Case

Custody Arrangements Are Unique To Each Family Situation
In child custody cases, there are more possibilities than you might first realize. Mississippi courts work to find a fair arrangement that prioritizes the child. Sometimes, the responsibilities and joys of caring for the child may be divided among the parents.
The possible outcomes of your child custody case could include:
- Physical custody: A parent with physical custody will reside with the child. Both parents may have physical custody and take turns rotating on a schedule that works with the child’s lifestyle.
- Legal custody: A parent with legal custody can make decisions for the child, such as education or medical care. Both parents may share legal custody. In this case, the parents may need to communicate and compromise often.
- Visitation: A parent with visitation rights does not have the same abilities as the custodial parent. However, a parent with visitation has the right to spend time with their child as specified in the final court order.
