Child Custody Lawyer in Attleboro
How is Child Custody Determined in Massachusetts?
While many individuals express their wishes for sole custody, it is essential that the needs of the children be considered and kept at the forefront of the case. It is not always best for children to be placed in a sole custody arrangement. Attorney Brian D. Roman can evaluate each case to consider the parents’ goals and how they can best meet the needs of the children. The courts approach cases in this manner as well, and Mr. Roman strives to provide clients with a straightforward explanation of how the courts may rule on custody.
We can explain all of the different types of terms that people often associate with child custody cases, including:
- Sole custody
- Physical custody
- Joint custody
- Legal custody
- Supervised visitation
Child custody is one of the most argued types of cases in the area of family law. Whether parents are divorcing or have never been married, it is important that all parties keep the best interests of the children in mind when pursuing a custody arrangement.
In the past, mothers were typically given preference when primary physical custody arrangements were being determined. This is not always the case anymore. The courts have realized how important it is for fathers to be in their children's lives and will often create custody orders that give equal time to each parent. Fathers do not need to shy away from pursuing the arrangements they wish to have.
