Learn More About Legal And Physical Child Custody
There are two types of custody in North Carolina, legal custody and physical custody. Legal custody involves the right to make important decisions for your child concerning issues such as education, medical care and religious upbringing. Physical custody relates to where your child will live.
Both parents will typically be granted joint legal custody of their children after a divorce. Joint physical custody may be granted as well, although one parent will usually be granted primary physical custody. The other parent will usually be allowed overnight visits according to a negotiated schedule.
IMPORTANT: Effective child custody agreements generally do not happen on their own. In order to reach an agreement that works for everyone involved, it is often necessary to negotiate with the help of an experienced attorney. You don’t have to go through child custody issues alone. We are here to help. Please see our Child Custody FAQ to learn more.
What About Sole Custody?
Unless a parent is considered unfit, or unless there is a history of domestic violence in the home, sole custody is not a realistic goal in North Carolina. Courts believe that it is in the best interests of children to have frequent and loving contact with both parents.
