DEFENDING YOUR PARENTING RIGHTS DURING CHILD CUSTODY NEGOTIATIONS
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CUSTODY IN MICHIGAN
Custody disputes can occur not only between divorcing parents, but also between unmarried parents in Michigan. In these cases, either parent may petition the court for sole or partial custody in one of two forms:
Legal custody: This gives parents decision-making rights regarding education, health care, religion and other important matters.
Physical custody: This determines where the child will live. The parent who receives sole physical custody works with the other parent to create a visitation schedule.
When parents are granted partial custody, they are responsible for sharing responsibilities for their children. It is essential to work with a qualified family law attorney when negotiating the terms of a custody arrangement and creating a parenting plan, as these agreements can have a significant impact on your daily schedule, parenting duties, and financial obligations. Our attorneys have the knowledge and experience necessary to help you determine the best custody arrangement for your family.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHILD’S BEST INTEREST STANDARD
In order for a custody agreement to be approved by a family law judge, it must meet the "best interests of the child" standard. This can be a complex legal concept to understand without a legal background. At our law firm, our legal team is skilled at negotiating custody terms that meet this standard and can customize parenting plans to address your specific concerns and circumstances. We are committed to helping you create a plan that meets the "best interests of the child" standard and helps your children transition smoothly to the next stage of their lives.
