Types of Child Custody in West Virginia Explained

Joint vs. Sole Physical Custody in WV

When parents share physical custody, they will divide the child's time between the parents. This is called "joint custody." In some cases, one parent will be granted sole custody, meaning that they will be the only parent to make decisions for the child.

Decision-Making and Legal Custody

Parents can share physical custody, but one parent will be granted sole or primary legal custody. The parent with primary legal custody will make decisions for the child's education, health, and welfare.

When parents cannot agree on child custody, they will have to go to court and let a judge decide the issue for them. The judge will look at many factors when deciding child custody, including each parent's ability to provide a safe and stable environment for the child.

Navigating Your Child Custody Case in Family Law Court

When parents are not able to agree on child custody, the case will go to Family Law court. When this happens, the judge will review the parents' situation and decide the best option for the child.

The factors a judge will consider include:

  • Each parent's ability to provide a safe and stable environment for the child
  • The child's relationship with both parents
  • The child's age and developmental needs
  • The child's preference, if they are old enough to express one
  • Each parent's physical and moral fitness
  • Each parent's ability to provide for the child's needs, including their financial situation
