Today’s straight talk: What are some important aspects to know about child custody?
If you are getting divorced and you have children, you may be concerned about child custody and how often you’re going to see your children after the divorce.
There are many examples of child custody, there is joint legal custody and sole custody. If you have joint legal custody, you have certain rights in determining what happens to your child when it comes to medical decisions, educational decisions, and other decisions that affect your child’s life. And that would be determined in the divorce. That determination will either be made by the judge or in your agreement that you make as part of your divorce.
