Theodore Enfield, a Miami family law attorney, announces to offer the divorcing parties advice in choosing the right type of child custody. There are three different child custody options: Joint custody, Sole custody, and Visitation.

Joint custody means that both parents are allowed to make the major decisions in a child's life. Joint custody does not mean that a child’s time with each parent must be divided half and half; it means that physical custody will be shared in such a way to ensure that the child has continuing contact with each parent. Joint custody works best if parents can set aside their differences during the divorce and discuss what is best for their child.

Sole custody means that only one parent has total decision-making authority concerning the major decisions in a child's life. The child also lives with the custodial parent. The non-custodial parent can still see the child, but cannot make any major decisions in the child’s life. It is also possible for the court to order that the non-custodial parent see the child as often as if they were a parent who has joint custody.

Visitation means that the non-custodial parent still has a right to see the child. The amount and type of visitation granted will depend on the ages of the children, how far apart the parents live from each other, and other specific factors relating the child and the divorce. Courts usually like to set up visitation schedules for the child to spend time with the non-custodial parent, and a judge may order supervised visitation if the safety of the child is an issue.
