Obtain A Fair Child Custody Arrangement
The process of divorcing in Massachusetts or anyplace else is never easy and never pleasant, and perhaps the most difficult and trying part of the whole process is determining the future of the minor children involved. Critical questions to be answered include who will the children live with, how will their needs be financed, who makes the critical decisions about the lives of each child, and what visitation privileges will the non-custodial parent enjoy.
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.
In Massachusetts, legal custody is different than physical custody. If at all possible, Massachusetts judges award the divorcing couple joint legal custody of the minor children. This is because it is considered an advantage to the child to have two parents who both love that child both actively involved in his or her young life.
