Why Hiring a Clearwater Lawyer is Crucial for Child Custody

Even though you do not need a family attorney for a child custody case, only a court of law can grant custody. You can overlook important steps or strategies that would benefit you for fair custody battles over your children without a lawyer presenting it in the very best light.

If you are uncertain about being prepared for a custody case, then a family lawyer is going to be your best option.

Key Factors Judges Consider in Clearwater Child Custody Cases

Understanding how a judge looks at your case can provide your attorney the details required to represent you efficiently in Florida family courts. The judge looks out for the best interests of the child including their psychological and mental health.

Understanding Joint vs. Sole Custody in Florida Law

In Florida, two types of child custody outlined in Florida Statute §61.13 are sole custody and joint custody. Sole custody, or "sole parental responsibility," refers to when only one parent has custody of a child, whereas joint custody, or "shared parental responsibility," refers to when both parents share the parental responsibility for a child. In general, the court will order both parents to share responsibility, unless the court finds that sharing parental responsibility will be detrimental to the child.
