Pursuing Sole Custody of Your Child
Some of the most contentious aspects of any divorce agreement involve those associated with the care of a child or children following the dissolution of the marriage. Under some circumstances, one parent will attempt to gain sole custody of his or her child when the other parent is thought to be unfit to care for the child. To achieve sole custody, however, the parent must typically demonstrate that it is in the best interest of the child to be solely in his or her care. With that in mind, it is highly advisable that anyone pursuing sole custody of their child or children retain an experienced family attorney to do so.
Rights of Sole Custody
With sole custody, a parent will retain sole legal responsibility over his or her child after the divorce. As such, parents who retain sole custody of their children are capable of making decisions about the wellbeing of their children without any interference on part of the other parent, including decisions regarding:
- Medical care
- Religious upbringing
- Any important life choices
