The term legal custody refers to the legal right of a parent to make decisions on behalf of his or her child. These major life decisions include: whether the child will be allowed to join the military or marry before the age of 18; whether the child will be allowed to obtain a drivers license; what religion the child will practice, etc., joint legal custody, the parents of the child are typically able to come to an agreement on these decisions.
Issues can arise when it comes to physical placement and child support. In order to prevent future disagreements, we at Thomas W. Kurzynski J.D., LLC feel it is imperative that a court hearing be held to specify when exactly the child will be placed in the mother's care and when exactly the child will be placed with the father. Call the experienced professionals at Thomas W. Kurzynski J.D., LLC to help settle your child custody and support case. Your child(ren) deserve it.
We also can offer legal representation to the parents in TPR (Termination of Parental Rights) cases.
