Courts prefer giving both parents joint legal and joint physical custody. This does not mean necessarily that the children will be with each parent exactly 50 percent of the time. Such an arrangement means a substantial sharing of time, rights and duties in decision making regarding the children. UNDERSTANDING CHILD CUSTODY IN MISSOURI & KANSAS •	Joint physical custody: This refers to how frequently the kids see each parent. The logistics of joint physical custody could involve alternate weekends, alternate holidays, one week here or there, and other tailored plans. •	Joint legal custody: This means the parents have equal access to the decision-making power regarding the children. Both parents have the right to see school and medical records and have a voice in deciding extracurricular activities, religious education and other important decisions. As a family law lawyer, our role is to represent your best interests as a parent, while achieving a solution that meets the best interests of your children. We will help you develop parenting time or visitation schedules that work best for your family.

We help mothers, fathers, grandparents and other family members learn their custody and visitation rights and what to expect from the process. We encourage settlement, but are ready to litigate any issue that cannot be resolved.
