Understanding Custody Arrangements 

Custody arrangements can vary significantly, from simple agreements between former spouses to court-ordered terms that are enforceable by law. The rules in play can be as diverse as the clients and families involved. Take a minute to learn about some of the most common custody arrangements.

Sole Custody

In sole custody arrangements, one parent retains complete custody of any children involved. These arrangements are most common in situations of abuse or when one parent is not interested in custody. This is an unlikely option in cases where two active and engaged parents are seeking custody.

Shared Custody

As the same suggests, this arrangement divides the child’s time between the two parents, with specifics varying depending on the case. This is often the easiest solution in amicable divorces; however, it’s important to keep in mind that instability and tension can arise between parents who enforce different rulesets in the two homes.


Child visitation rights can be granted to a parent even if he or she is deemed unready for custody. These rights can be enacted in-person or virtually. For many parents, this is a valuable way to remain a part of their child’s life.
