Child Custody

Obtain A Fair Child Custody Arrangement | Boston South Custody Attorney

When children are involved in a divorce or separation, custody disputes frequently arise.  If you or a loved one is having problems determining a child custody arrangement with the other parent, you will need to hire a lawyer who knows child custody matters.  When two parents split up, child custody must be decided and the arrangement will have to be adhered to by both parties, otherwise legal action may become necessary.  If you are a parent who is going through a divorce and needs help getting custody of your children, or are trying to take action against the other parent because they are disregarding previous custody arrangements, Attorney Watson can help you.

There are many different types of custody arrangements that can be made in Massachusetts. Schedule a consultation to learn more. Call 617.773.4111

Sole Custody Orders Include:

  • Exclusive Custody
  • Sole Physical Custody
  • Sole Legal Custody

Joint Custody Orders Include:

  • Pure Joint Custody
  • Joint Legal Custody
  • Joint Physical Custody
  • Divided or “Split” Custody

When two parents cannot come to an agreement about child custody on their own, it will be up to the courts to decide the terms of the custody arrangement.  A number of things will be considered by court to determine child custody, and they will always hold the best interests of the child at heart.  The court’s main concern is to assure the safety and welfare of the child and to maintain frequent and continuing contact with both parents through visitation.  Parents are encouraged to share in the responsibilities of their children following a divorce or separation, unless extenuating circumstances prevent one parent from doing so.
