Child Custody & Child Support in WV
The legalities of on-going physical and monetary support can sometimes be difficult to negotiate in the midst of a divorce proceeding, but they must be addressed. Our attorneys at Kirby & Ashley, L.C. can work with you to protect your rights as a spouse as well as the rights of any children who may be impacted by the major change in the family structure, no matter how long it takes.
For custody, it is important to know there can sometimes be a difference between legal custody, physical custody, and sole custody—and what that entails for your particular situation. In most cases, both parents retain their legal status as parents. If there is a wide separation in living arrangements or particular beliefs that have an impact on daily life, the practical option of sole custody may make better sense. One parent may have primary physical and legal custody of the child.
