Legal Custody of a Child

Child custody is a central component of many family law cases. The decisions made in these cases can have a far-reaching impact on a child’s overall wellbeing. Custody and child support are the two most direct ways in which a child’s life may be affected by family law disputes.

If you are involved in a family law case, it is crucial to have experienced legal counselors on your side. If you are fighting for your right to be a part of your child’s life, please contact the Conroe child custody lawyers at Garg & Associates, P.C., by calling 281-210-0010 to schedule a free initial consultation.

What Is Legal Custody?

Child custody has two important components. Physical custody determines where a child actually resides and who cares for that child. Though both parents may be involved in supporting a child, often just one individual is the custodial parent. However, a noncustodial parent can still retain legal custody of his or her children. Legal custody gives a parent the right to help make important decisions concerning the child’s welfare, including those involving:

  • Education
  • Religious activities
  • Financial decisions
  • Medical decisions

If you are seeking physical or legal custody of your child, you need an experienced legal professional on your side. Contact our Conroe & Spring child custody lawyers for more information.
