Child Custody Arrangements
At the time of your divorce or paternity / parentage action, a child custody determination will be made. Based on the judge’s assessment of each parent’s capabilities and the needs of the child, a child custody order will establish who will have legal custody (decision making authority) and physical custody (who has physical responsibility for the child’s care). Various arrangements are possible, including sole physical and legal custody, joint physical and legal custody or sole physical and joint legal custody. Throughout the proceedings, child custody lawyer Patrick K. Yeatts can develop a clear and compelling case to highlight your capabilities as a parent and build a strong case for custody.

By taking time to understand your unique family situation and your child’s needs, child custody attorney Patrick K. Yeatts can help you secure a detailed visitation schedule that minimizes the chances for conflicts and misunderstandings.
Modifications to Custody and Visitation Schedules
Modification of an existing custody order or visitation schedule is often needed to accommodate changing circumstances and a child’s changing needs.
