Orlando Joint & Sole Custody Attorneys
In Florida, child custody can take one of two forms — joint custody or sole custody. Joint custody means both parents make decisions about important issues like medical treatment, religion and education. Sole custody means one parent has the right to make those decisions.
In most custody cases, a court will award physical custody to one parent — meaning that parent has primary residence with the child or children — while the other parent will be considered to have joint legal custody. Every situation is unique, but the court will generally consider the “best interest of the child” in making a custody decision.
