Legal And Physical Custody

The two major types of custody in Kentucky are legal and physical custody. If a parent is given legal custody, he or she is able to make major life decisions for the child and is the child's sole or joint custodian. This means that the parent can make major decisions regarding schooling, religious upbringing, health care decisions and more. If parents are given joint custody, both are able to contribute to the decision-making process. Today, the courts favor this type of custodial arrangement (if it is in the best interests of the child).

Physical custody refers to the place that the child lives. In most situations, one parent will be given physical custody and the other parent will be awarded parenting time (visitation). In many situations, this can be divided 50/50 (both parents get equal time with the child).

When you work with Clauson Law Office, our lawyer will explain the likely outcomes of your custody case and what factors the courts will look at when determining custodial arrangements.

Child Support, Custody Modifications And Other Matters

While child support calculations are typically based on statutory factors, determining whether one parent is obligated to pay or receive child support is based on a number of different factors. We can easily explain how child support is determined and what factors judges will look at.

We also represent our clients in matters relating to custody and support, including:

  • Grandparents' rights

  • Parental move-aways

  • Custody modifications

  • Adoption

  • Parenting time (visitation)

  • Child support enforcements
