Complex Custody And Move-Away Cases
When a marriage that has produced children ends in marriage dissolution, determining custody arrangements can prove to be one of the most emotionally difficult and contentious obstacles to achieving a resolution. In a marriage dissolution, two separate types of custody must be determined:
- Physical custody refers to which parent the child actually lives with and when.
- Legal custody refers to which parent retains the right and responsibility to make educational, medical, and religious decisions regarding the child's upbringing.
Although sole custody may be granted when it is in the best interest of the child, all custody decisions start out in favor of some form of joint custody. In these cases, a visitation plan will outline how the parents will share custody.
At Trope and Trope LLP, our attorneys assist clients with both simple and complex custody and visitation matters, including "move-away" cases, where one parent wants to relocate outside of California, or even outside the country.
