Custody Representation—What Does the Client Want?
When representing clients in custody disputes, custody lawyer Harold Stone III intently listens to the clients' goals for custody. He explains the differences between joint legal custody, joint physical custody, and sole custody, each of which involve visitation rights. If after custody has been determined, a visitation schedule cannot be negotiated, the court will follow guidelines in determining a schedule.
Modification of Support or Custody
In order for the court to approve a change in custody or child support payments, there are two standards that will be addressed. In custody modifications, the court will look at whether there has been a substantial and material change and look to the best interests of the child. If a parent is moving out of state, has abused the child, or has been a bad influence, the best interest may be for the custody to be modified. In order to adjust child support payments, there must have been a significant and material change in circumstances, such as an increase or decrease in income.
