Family law is about protecting what matters most and nothing matters more than your children. If you are facing a custody issue, it is imperative to have a knowledgeable attorney guiding you and helping you stand up for your parental rights.
In the Detroit metro area, that means reaching out to The Kaplan Law Firm in Royal Oak. Founding attorney Joshua A. Kaplan is a skilled legal advocate who fights to achieve the best possible outcomes for mothers, fathers, and children in Michigan custody cases.
Amicable parents are given great leeway to design a parenting time schedule that works best for them and their children. When disputes arise, it is important to have an attorney presenting your case and demonstrating why you deserve your fair share of parenting time. The number of overnights each parent has is also a crucial factor in determining how much child support, if any, will be paid by each parent.
For all intents and purposes there is no such thing as “sole custody”, at least in the way most people think of that term. There is legal custody – granting the right to make decisions about the child’s upbringing, medical treatment, school enrollment and other issues – and physical custody. Legal custody and physical custody are almost always shared.
