Child Custody

CHILD CUSTODY DETAILS

At the Schaefer Law., we understand the challenges and emotional toll that child custody matters can have on families. Our experienced family law attorneys are here to provide you with the guidance and support you need during this difficult time.

In Massachusetts, child custody is comprised of two components: legal custody and physical custody. Let’s explore the differences:

  • Legal custody: Legal custody determines which parent has the authority to make decisions regarding the child’s health, education, religious upbringing, and overall development.
  • Physical custody: Physical Custody refers to the parenting time arrangement and determines how much time each parent spends with the child.
