Child custody is the single-most emotional component of any divorce. In ugly divorces, parents can sometimes treat their children as trophies to be won, with the parent who wins greater custody serving as the “victor.” These divorce battles can be brutal on kids. However, in real life, the courts want parents to work together; courts want children to have both parents in their lives, not just one. As counselor, advocate, and advisor to our clients, the firm of James M. Judkins, Attorney at Law, fights to get our clients the best results without hurting their children or their families.

When your children are at the center of a legal battle, you want a strong litigator in your corner. Attorney James M.

Physical Custody, Legal Custody & Visitation Rights

Child custody is divided into two types: physical custody or legal custody. Physical custody simply refers to which parent the child lives with, whether it’s their mom, their dad, or a mix of both. Legal custody is the right for both parents to make decisions for their child regarding healthcare, education, and religious upbringing. Even if one parent has physical custody, both parents may share legal custody over their child. Note that the parent with physical custody may still be legally obligated to allow visitation hours to the non-custodial parent.

Child custody agreements (also known as visitation agreements) can come together in one of two ways. Either both parents can come together to create an agreement, or one parent will have to sue for their rights to custody or visitation in court. Our Murfreesboro child custody firm is well-equipped to handle either situation. If you need help litigating for the sake of your children’s futures, James M. Judkins is ready to be your ally and representative.
