Child Custody / Visitation
When the parents have joint legal custody, they must both work together to make these decisions. Joint legal custody is when both parents have equal rights to make decisions on behalf of the child. These jointly made decisions are in place to maintain consistency in the child’s life, regardless of which parent they are with physically.
Parents can have sole or joint custody depending on the arrangement. In North Carolina, joint physical custody means the child lives equally with both parents, with the living arrangements customized depending on the needs of the family. For example, the child alternates weeks or weekends with the parents.
What Factors Do The Courts Consider In Granting Custody?
Several factors may influence the settlement of the visitation schedule, including the child’s:
- School and activities schedule
- Availability of each parent
- Distance between each of the parent’s homes
When we needed an attorney recently we contacted Kellie Gonzalez and could not have been more pleased with our interactions with her and the outcome she obtained for us.
I am writing to thank all of you, for assisting with the completion of the will and other key documents.
They were wonderful. Very efficient and great communicators.
Received a speeding ticket while passing through NC.
We used Kellie as our real estate attorney when purchasing a home.
