Cary Child Custody & Child Support
One of the most difficult issues surrounding a divorce or separation in Cary is the that of determining child custody & child support. At Marshall & Taylor, we want to help you through this process and give you the information you need to ensure that your child is placed in the healthiest environment available.
In Cary, the custody laws require that the custody of a child be awarded to the person, agency, organization or institution that will best promote the interests and welfare of the minor child. Child custody laws in Cary do not require that the court find that one parent is unfit so that in the end, the decision is made to best promote the development and wellbeing of the child. The decision takes many factors into consideration including past custodial environments, special needs of the child, the schedule and flexibility of each parent, and any other reasons why each spouse might be seeking custody. While it is generally the natural parents who have custody rights over the child in Cary, North Carolina, the law also provides for the ability of the grandparents or other interested third parties to assert custodial rights pending certain circumstances. The process of deciding child custody in Cary, followed by child support, and the complex terminology that goes along with it can get confusing and sometimes overwhelming. At Marshall & Taylor we can help you make sense of terms like: joint custody, full custody, primary physical custody, secondary physical custody, visitation and other options available, and then pursue the best options for you and your children during and after your divorce.
