Danbury Child Custody Lawyer: Experienced Legal Representation

As the laws in Connecticut are designed to ensure both parents remain a part of guiding the future well-being of a child each parent will normally receive either custodial or visitation rights.

Certain factors such as a past history of violence or drug abuse may limit such rights to that parent but even then, they usually retain some right of visitation.

The child custody laws establish three basic choices the court must choose from:

  • Sole Custody is where one parent is given total or primary custody including both legal and physical control of the child. That parent is responsible for making all the day-to-day decisions in caring for and raising the child while the other has some visitation rights.
  • Joint Custody allows both parents to share the responsibly of making major decisions about the child's welfare such as health issues, school choices and the like. Although the child most often lives primarily with one parent, both take a shared role in the raising of the child.
  • Shared Custody is where both parents share equally in both the major and day-to-day choices. Although this may sound like the best choice for many divorcing parents, it is often difficult to implement and hard to oversee.

Because these choices are often emotional and difficult to face, it is important to get the best legal advice possible from an experienced attorney at our office in Danbury. We will handle all aspects of your divorce and child custody issues.
