Get a Closer Look at Child Custody Laws in Alabama
When determining child custody, the court will take certain factors into
consideration such as the moral character of parents and domestic violence
history. The child's safety and wishes, as well as their age and gender,
may also determine custody arrangements.
In the state of Alabama, when a couple cannot come to a child custody agreement,
a court can grant three types of custodial rights:
Physical custody- The court decides which parent will have
sole custody of the child while granting the other parent visitation rights. Parents
can also have
custody, which means the child can spend significant periods of time living with
Legal custody- The court decides which parent has the legal right to make decisions
about the child's welfare, health, education, etc. Parents can also have
joint legal custody.
Visitation rights- If the court decides to grant sole custody to a parent, the non-custodial
parent may be granted visitation rights.
