Fort Wayne Child Custody Lawyer

If you have children take a moment to imagine what it would be like if you could only see them once a month. Or even worse, what would you do if you were told you couldn’t see them at all, or have any say in the important decisions in their lives? Of course, those are not the kind of circumstances that any parent wants to face, but when a couple with children in Fort Wayne decides to split up, these kinds of things can, and do, happen.

Different Types of Custody

Child Custody is obviously a serious matter and it not only affects the parents but it can greatly affect the children as well. In most cases, both parents get to share legal custody of their children when they split up. That means that both parents will be able to have input in the important decisions in their children’s lives. However, physical custody is different from legal custody. It refers to which parent with whom the children will primarily live. Typically when one parent is awarded physical custody, the other parent, known as the non-custodial parent, will still be awarded visitation rights.
