In the case of divorce, generally, the court having jurisdiction of the divorce proceedings also determines who shall have custody of children from the marriage. (The authority to do so is considered part of the original jurisdiction of the court, and not as a new authority being conferred upon them.) Under the common statutory provision, the parents of a child born within a marriage are joint guardians of that child and the rights of both parents are equal--each parent has an equal right to the custody of the child when they separate. Like other aspects of family law, most law in this field is state rather than Federal.

  • Choosing a Lawyer
  • Should you choose a large lawyer or a small lawyer:
    The size of a law firm has no relation to how well your case will be taken up. A large law firm may seem well staffed and having a great office, but what you must see is whether they will take out enough time and effort towards your case. Large firms receive large cases that would figure above smaller cases in their priority list. A law firm with over 10 lawyers on its rolls can be considered a large firm.

  • Always make a comparison before choosing a lawyer:
    Before you choose a lawyer always make a good comparison by asking colleagues, friends and people associated with the legal profession. You can get some important information, which you would not get by simply visiting the law firm in question. Another good comparison is by finding out what other lawyers and legal web sites think about the law firm. A good site to find out about the standing of lawyers is www.martindale.com
