Courts allocate a variety of rights and duties between the parents. What most people mean when they refer to ‘custody’ is the right to designate the primary residence of the child. The amount of time each parent spends with the child and what the schedule looks like is called ‘Possession and Access’. The right to make medical, educational, and other decisions, and how other decisions are made on behalf of the child is called conservatorship. Lastly, one parent will collect child support from the other parent.
Jury trials are the most complex type of hearings in civil court, and if you want an experienced attorney to represent you, it may seem like an expensive endeavor. However, having someone experienced in jury trials will save you money because they are more efficient and effective in their preparation than most. Think of it this way, would you rather have a low-cost surgeon with a spotty track record, or an appropriately-priced, highly-recommended surgeon? In the long run, If you opt for the discounted surgeon, you’re likely going to spend more time, money, and energy trying to correct their mistakes than you would if you hired the more highly-regarded surgeon. Secure your future. Hire an attorney that understands every detail of your case and how to use them in court.
