Helping you protect your relationship with your child.
Most parents know their divorce won't only affect them, but also affect their children. We know that child custody is one of the most frustrating topics for couples getting a divorce because both parents want what is best for their child—even if they have different ideas of what that means. With the help of an experienced attorney, you can get a fair child custody agreement that benefits all parties involved while meeting your needs.
The Danvers child custody attorneys at Miller Law Group, P.C. help clients throughout Massachusetts craft parenting agreements that help ensure a fair division of child custody responsibilities. For parents who believe the other parent is a danger, we help build a case to prevent them from having too much responsibility over your children; however, most parents recognize that while their marriage is over, their spouse is still the parent of their child. We help you obtain a strong agreement while having you and your child’s best interests in mind.

How Is a Child Custody Plan Determined in Massachusetts?
Child custody talks can turn into contested litigation if couples can’t come up with a plan or agreement. In some cases, both parents want full custody of their child, or they want to have a say in how their child will be raised. However, to determine the best solution with the child’s best interests in mind, a judge will make a decision based on various factors.
Judges in Massachusetts courts will consider the following factors for child custody agreements:
- Which parent is more involved in the child’s daily life
- The age of the children
- Where each parent lives
- The stability of each parent’s household
- And many more.
Different Types of Child Custody
The state of Massachusetts can grant parents different types of child custody plans depending on their unique situation. Some of the different child custody plans include the following:
- Sole Custody: Any arrangement where one parent has full responsibility for a child's physical or legal well-being.
- Joint Custody: Any arrangement where parents share responsibility of their child is joint custody.
- Legal Custody: This allows one or both parents to provide input on how the child should be raised.
- Physical Custody: This is granted to the parent who the child will live with. Some arrangements allow children to move between each parent, allowing them to live with both parents on alternating weeks or weekends.
