Child custody determines the legal relationship between the children and each parent. It determines which parent the child resides with and who has the right to make important decisions.

Child custody disputes arise after a divorce or separation. If both parents agree, they can create a parenting plan detailing the primary custodian and visitation hours. But if they cannot agree, the court will pass a child custody judgment based on the best interests of the child.
