Child Custody – Allocation of Parental Responsibilities
Family separation is hard on children. All the life changes they undergo can be confusing and disorienting. The family law attorneys at Charles T. Newland & Associates want to help you provide stability in your child’s life, protecting their well-being above all else. When it comes to dividing parental responsibilities, we’ll examine your case and help you reach the best possible outcome.
Child custody, now known as allocation of parental responsibilities, relates to the issue of which parent is primarily responsible for caring for a child. Usually, it involves a shared allocation of parental authority between both parents. Many factors are considered when custody is being discussed, including the parent’s living arrangements, family history, the child’s emotional attachments, and the parent’s ability to care for the child. Ultimately, the child’s well-being is always the primary concern the court considers. At Charles T.
