Okaloosa County Child Custody Attorneys

Chesser & Barr, P.A. Keeps the Best Interests of Your Children in Mind

Child custody is, without question, one of the most argued and contested subjects that comes up in divorce cases. If you and your spouse are having a hard time deciding who will take care of your children, it may be time to involve an [[INVALID_TOKEN]] child custody lawyer to assist you. At Chesser & Barr, P.A., we handle many different types of divorce cases for all sorts of families, and child custody often causes the most problems in the divorce process.

There are two basic types of child custody: physical custody and legal custody. Physical custody refers to which parent the child will live with, while legal custody refers to the parent who will be responsible for making decisions on behalf of the child. This is sometimes split between the two parents and other times it is the same parent who will have both jobs.
