Framingham Child Custody Attorney

Call (888) 209-7080 to Protect Your & Your Child’s Best Interests

Barach Law Group LLC is committed to protecting your best interests while also acting in the best interests of your child. Child custody is often a hotly contested issue in many divorce cases in Massachusetts and the United States. Our Framingham divorce attorney understands how to handle these delicate matters by finding a balance between aggressive representation and compassionate care to the children involved.

Massachusetts Child Custody Laws

Under state law, there are two types of child custody: legal custody and physical custody. A parent with legal custody has the right and responsibility to make important decisions affecting the children, such as where they should attend school and what religion they should practice. Physical custody refers to where the children will live and which parent supervises the child’s daily activities.

As part of custody negotiations, parents will have to decide on sole or shared legal custody and sole or shared physical custody. If the parents cannot come with a mutual decision, then the judge will make custody decisions for them.

The following are several facts used to determine child custody in Massachusetts:

  • What’s best for the child, meaning putting the child’s needs above everything else
  • The child’s long-term safety and well-being
  • The quality of each parent’s relationship with the children
  • The family’s current residential custody arrangement and how any changes may affect the child
  • If both parents can effectively co-parent together

Child custody cases are heard in the Massachusetts Probate and Family Courts. In the event of the divorce, the judge will review and approve child custody decisions.
