Child custody battles are some of the most challenging aspects of divorce. As a parent, you want the very best for your child, and making sure their future is secure becomes your top priority.

Hamblin, your dedicated Fulton child custody attorney, to guide you through this process, exploring all legal options with your child’s welfare at the heart of every decision.

When Child Custody Becomes a Problem

There are situations in divorce cases where child custody can become a contentious issue. This is particularly true in instances involving abusive parents. Protecting your child from harm is paramount, and as your legal representative, I am committed to ensuring their safety. My extensive experience and deep understanding of the complexities surrounding such cases equip me to fight relentlessly for your child’s best interests.

Factors Considered by Missouri Courts in Child Custody Cases

When determining child custody arrangements, Missouri courts consider a variety of factors, all aimed at securing the best outcomes for the child. These include the wishes of the child and each parent, the child’s relationship with each parent, the mental and physical health of all parties involved, and the child’s adjustment to his or her home, school and community.

Understanding Types of Child Custody in Missouri

Missouri recognizes several types of child custody. Understanding these terms and how they apply to your situation is crucial in making informed decisions about your child’s future:

  • Joint physical custody refers to both parents sharing significant periods of time with the child. 
  • Joint legal custody means that both parents share decision-making rights, responsibilities, and authority relating to the child’s health, education, and welfare. 
  • Sole physical custody refers to the child residing with and being under the supervision of one parent. 
  • Sole legal custody means one parent has the decision-making rights, responsibilities, and authority relating to the child’s health, education and welfare. 
  • Lastly, third-party custody is awarded to someone other than a parent if it is in the best interest of the child.

As your attorney, I am dedicated to helping you navigate these options, ensuring your understanding of each type of custody and how it could impact your child’s life.
