Ridgeland, MS
Custody Law

Child custody refers to the rights and obligations between parents, regarding their children, after a divorce, legal separation, or paternity decree.

Contact our Ridgeland Office

Often, the court designates one parent as the primary physical custodian, giving the other parent a schedule of temporary custody and visitation. In some cases, however, the court orders joint legal and physical custody, by which, both parents have substantial access to their children.

  • Physical Custody

    Refers to the amount of time each parent is permitted physically with a child.

  • Legal Custody

    Refers to a parent’s decision-making rights regarding a child’s health, education, and welfare

  • Custody Factors

    Almost every state determines child custody issues based on a best-interest-of-the-child standard.
