Scottsdale, Ariz. – There are many different types of child custody to consider when filing for divorce from a spouse. From joint custody to the differences between joint legal and joint physical custody, the experienced Arizona divorce lawyers at Corso Law Group can explain the differences and defend your rights in family court.
In Arizona, joint legal custody means that both parents have equal rights and responsibilities in raising their child. The parents will work together to make important decisions regarding the child’s education and religious upbringing and when giving permissions, such as for sleep overs, summer camps, driving, dating, and etc.
Neither parent is set apart as the primary decision maker; they are equal, except where conditions specified by the court are concerned.
Joint legal custody does not ensure that both parents have equitable time with the child. One parent may spend more time with the child than does the other parent.
Joint physical custody in Arizona means both parents have equal rights and responsibilities in raising their child. They work together to make important decisions regarding the child’s upbringing, and the child shares an equitable amount of time with each parent.
Choosing the custody agreement that is right for your situation can be difficult without the counsel of an experienced divorce attorney, according to the Arizona divorce lawyers at Corso Law Group.
