Are you embroiled in a child custody dispute?

In Michigan, courts use a 12-factor test to determine a custody arrangement. Courts consider these 12 factors in order to determine what is in the best interest of the child or children. Recently divorced couples with children, couples who are in the process of divorces with children or individuals who have never been married, but have a child together, likely have to deal with child custody and parenting time issues. Parenting time is the more modern term for visitation. Disputes between parties regarding who should get physical and legal custody of children and what the parenting time should be like for the non-custodial parent can arise.

My ex wants to relocate. What are child custody relocation laws?

The issue of child custody relocation typically arises when the custodial parent decides to move to another state or to a location within the state, but at a significant distance such that the non-custodial parent will be limited to a long-distance relationship with the child. Such relocation requests can interfere with the non-custodial parent's rights to visitation and parenting time.

Navigating the different types of child custody arrangements

Divorcing couples with children, and unmarried couples who have a child together, are more than likely familiar with the term child custody which is frequently used by court personnel, lawyers and judges alike in the family law court system. However, what many parents may not know is that the umbrella term child custody encompasses several different types of custody arrangement which one or both parents may be granted.
