When a judge orders a custody arrangement, he or she will determine what type of custody will be established, including who will be the custodial or non-custodial parent. Decisions as to the child’s upbringing and where the child lives can either be shared equally, or given to one parent over the other. The parent to whom visitation is awarded will be given either supervised or unsupervised visitation, depending on the circumstances of your child custody case.
The following are different types of custody that may be awarded and may result in visitation being awarded to one parent:
Parent has the right to have child live with them instead of the other parent; an ample visitation schedule may be set up for the other parent.
