Negotiating Custody For Your Child

Negotiating Custody For Your Child

Here in Connecticut, the court looks at the interest of the child first and foremost during custody discussions. This is a standard that is used to determine not only physical custody and a schedule of visitations, but it also helps to outline any necessary child support payments. The court will look at a range of factors, such as the health and safety of the child, then use these to make determinations.

At the law offices of Charles & Concilio, LLC in Greenwich, CT, we know how important it is to have the right legal counsel by your side during custody negotiations and hearings. These are pivotal moments that can play a significant role in how you and the other parent operate on a daily basis, and the actions of the court are legally binding. If you and your former partner have decided to end your relationship, talk to a trusted team of family law attorneys about your next steps. Give us a call today to schedule a time to meet!

How Connecticut Views Custody Of A Child

The term “custody” in informal settings often refers to two separate discussions. There is physical custody, which includes where the child will primarily reside. Essentially, who is in control of the child at any given time. Legal custody is a different topic, which determines the power to make important decisions while they are growing up, and legal custody can be shared between you two as parents.

In the state of Connecticut, we tend to feel that shared custody is generally in the best interest of the child. Assuming there is no evidence that states that the child is at risk by being placed into custody with one parent, it is helpful that both of you have a hand in raising the little one. Sometimes, there are circumstances that warrant sole custody, such as domestic violence history, negligence, or absence.

Negotiating Custody Is An Option As Parents

One of the more helpful ways of managing custody is through what is known as a parenting plan, assuming that you and the other parent are able to work together for the sake of the child. Negotiating custody through a parenting plan gives you two the ability to come to a consensus on some important matters regarding raising your child, such as the schedule of visitations. In these hectic times, adhering to a court’s schedule can be difficult, so a parenting plan helps you two to figure out what works best for you as a family.
