Child Custody Attorney In Oakdale, Minnesota

There have been studies of the impact of divorce on children. Research indicates that children of divorce are more likely to have problems with the law later in life. It is clear that every step should be taken to reduce the impact of divorce on a child by ensuring that the child can maintain a strong relationship with both parents. Every effort should be made to avoid any animosity that the child might get caught up in, resulting in long-lasting emotional scars.

Physical Custody And Legal Custody

Two of the key terms you will hear when dealing with child custody are physical custody and legal custody. Physical custody refers to where the child will live. Legal custody refers to the decisions made regarding the child's education, religion and other matters.

Child Custody Modifications

Child custody and visitation arrangements can be changed under certain circumstances. For example, if one parent gets remarried or has another child, a modification may be necessary. Modification may be needed if there is some threat to the child's well-being. When one parent wants to move to another city or state, child custody arrangements may need to be altered. The law firm can assist with changes to child custody plans.
