Types of Child Custody
This type of custody allows one or both parents to provide input regarding how the child is raised, including major decisions such as where he or she will be raised and attend school.
This type of custody concerns the child’s residence and which parent the child will primarily live with.
This term describes custody agreements in which both parents share custody, although not always equally.
This means only one parent has been designated the primary parent with physical custody, legal custody or both. Even if one parent is granted sole custody, the court might also agree to a visitation agreement.
The Massachusetts courts recognize that children should enjoy parenting time with both of their parents as much as possible, provided that this is consistent with the children’s best interests.
Child Custody Modifications in Massachusetts
Child custody agreements must be proportionate to the family’s needs. That means if circumstances change, so too should the custody order. If you or your child has experienced a substantial change in circumstances, you may be able to petition for a child custody modification. Miller Law Group can help you with this as well.
