Understanding the Basics: Custody & Visitation
Child Custody: This refers to the rights and responsibilities between parents for taking care of their children. It can be categorized into two types:
Legal Custody: The right to make significant decisions about a child's health, education, and welfare.
Physical Custody: Where the child will live.
Visitation (or “Time-Share”): For the parent who doesn't have primary physical custody, visitation rights detail how often and under what circumstances they can visit their child. It’s essential to know that even if one parent has sole physical custody, the other might still have visitation rights, unless it's determined detrimental to the child.
The Best Interest of the Child: Our Guiding Principle
Every decision made by the court, and indeed our representation, hinges on what’s in the child’s best interest. This encompasses various factors including the child’s health, safety, welfare, the history of abuse (if any) by one parent against any child, and the nature and amount of contact with both parents.

Life is dynamic, and circumstances change. Whether due to relocation, significant life changes, or concerns about the child’s well-being in their current environment, modifications might be necessary. Custody Queens provides expert legal counsel to parents wishing to revisit and modify their existing custody and visitation orders, ensuring the continued best interest of the child.
