Child Custody

Child custody describes the legal aspect of naming the guardian or custodian of a child.  A child's guardian is usually his/her parents but this custody may be transferred to another person or to only one of the parents in the event of death, divorce, abandonment or abuse of the child.  Court decisions to award custody of a child are determined by the best interests of the child.

Most contentious disputes over child custody arise out of divorce of the parents.  During marriage both parents usually enjoy joint custody over their children.  After divorce, one parent may be given legal custody with the sole rights and responsibility to determine the child's education, religious instruction, medical care and general care, upbringing and welfare.  The other parent is often given visitation rights.

If the divorced parents continue to share joint custody, they will participate equally in making the decisions for the child and will split the time in caring for and raising the child.  Joint custody is often difficult for divorced parents as differences can easily arise as well as possible inconvenient changes in the location of a parent an child.
