Understanding Physical And Legal Custody
Legal custody confers the right to make major decisions on how your child is raised, focusing on their education, health care and religious upbringing. Physical custody determines where the child lives and involves creating a schedule that allows for visitation and parenting time with both parents.
Indiana courts make decisions on legal and physical custody based on the best interests of the child. The judge will consider a number of factors when deciding how to award custody, including:
- The child’s relationship and interaction with parents, siblings and others who would affect their best interests
- The adjustment of the child to their environment, including school, home and community
- The health of everyone involved, both physical and mental
- Instances of domestic violence or abuse
- The wishes of both parents, as well as those of a child over 14 years of age
A judge will weigh these considerations based on the potential impact on the child, whose safety and security are paramount. We can help you present a strong case to the court and secure a custody agreement that is in the best interests of you and your child.
