A marriage having a traumatic end doesn’t imply that things are over, it only gives an individual second chance to start his/her life over again but beginning on a fresh note may not always be an easy choice especially when this decision involves child custody.

Whether the issue of child custody arises due to the ending of a marriage or the concern of an unwedded parent, decisions involving child custody are extremely peculiar and involve a lot of legal issues that can only be sorted out with the help of an attorney having expertise in handling such issues.

Alternatively, legal custody concerns the life decisions of a child; all matters related to educational, medical, religious factors are decided by legal custodians. Generally legal custody is permitted to one parent or decisions are divided between both.
