Mesa Legal Custody Attorney

Want to Make Decisions for Your Child?

Child custody consists of parenting time and legal custody. Legal custody is the right to make certain determinations for your child. including:

  • Schooling
  • Medical care
  • Religious upbringing
  • Housing

While married, parents typically make these decisions together, so most courts prefer that parents continue to share decision-making responsibilties after a divorce. Sometimes, parents will make all decisions together. Other times, one parent will have sole decision-making over schooling, while the other decides medical care, or another variation. Unfortunately, child custody remains one of the most hotly disputed elements of family law.

When Would a Court Grant Sole Legal Custody?

There are some situations, however, when a court would grant legal custody to only one parent. This is referred to as sole legal custody.

  • One parent has a history of abuse or neglect.
  • One parent has been charged or convicted of a crime that would endanger the child.
  • One parent is unable to cooperate with another.
  • The parents lives a far distance away from each other.
