What is joint physical custody?

10745492_S.jpgIf you are involved in a child custody dispute, you could be facing a whirlwind of uncertainty. Moreover, you could have different questions and be unsure of how key terms could affect your relationship with your children after you have split up with your spouse. Furthermore, some parents in Missouri may have stress or unanswered questions about child custody topics even before they have brought up the topic of divorce. Regardless, it is critical to ensure that you fully understand different potential custody arrangements and prepare for the different possible outcomes.

According to the Missouri House of Representatives, joint physical custody involves each parent having approximate and reasonable time periods where their child is under their supervision or lives with them. However, this does not always mean that custody will be equal. Through joint physical custody, the goal is to offer children the opportunity to have regular, frequent and relevant contact with each of their parents.

Working your way through custody issues can be hard for different reasons. On the one hand, you could be experiencing emotional struggles, such as anger or depression, which you worry will get in the way of the case. Or, you could be worried about the potential impact that a custody arrangement will have on your child or fear that you will not be able to stay in touch with your child as often as you would like to. By reviewing this topic thoroughly, you may be able to gain a better foothold. Keep in mind, this write-up is not to be read as legal advice.
