Child Custody & Placement

The Difference Between Custody & Placement

  • Custody- The term refers to the parent’s right to make major decisions for a child. Types of decisions that are covered by custody include healthcare, education, and religion. In the best interest of the child, however, the court may grant joint custody, which means both parents have a say on the important decisions concerning their child.
  • Placement- The term refers to the period of time a child spends with both parents. One party may be awarded primary placement while the other parent will have shared-placement or at least 25% of time spent with the child. In cases where there are two or more children involved, the court may award split-placement where the parents will each have at least one child under their care.

If you are having trouble navigating the child custody and placement during a divorce proceeding, enlist the help of Burbach & Stansbury S.C. Our firm offers personalized attention and customizes our strategies according to the specific needs and goals of your family.
