As you move through the divorce process, you may have many questions pertaining to child custody. It doesn't matter if you have one child with your former spouse or several, you need to know how custody is determined and what you can do to put yourself in a better position.
The primary thing to remember is that the court always takes into consideration the best interests of the child. In part because of that tenet, joint custody is generally the most common type. With this, there is shared legal custody, even though only one parent is the physical custodian of the child.
