The Difference Between Custody & Placement
One of the biggest concerns of your divorce may be custody and placement. Legal custody involves the decision-making regarding your children, while physical placement involves where your children will reside.
Custody refers to the parent’s right to make major decisions for a child. Types of decisions that are covered by custody include health care, 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 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 the time spent with the child. In cases where there are two or more children involved, the court may award split placement so each parent can have at least one child under their care.
Parents and children alike may have preferences for custody and placement. Our attorneys will work to help you clearly voice those preferences to the court. Sometimes, these preferences can impact the final custody order. If circumstances change, we can advise you regarding a modification.
