Child Custody

Minnesota’s child custody laws distinguish between legal and physical custody of a child. Legal custody refers to the responsibility to make major life decisions for a child, while physical custody refers to where a child will primarily reside. When determining the type of custody arrangement that is in a child’s best interests, courts look at 12 factors set forth in Minnesota state law.

If custody was established in the past, then it can be changed in certain circumstances and by following specific time limitations.

Parenting Time (Visitation)

The Law Office of Jennifer Nixon can help parents or third parties achieve fair and beneficial child custody and parenting time arrangements through traditional court-based solutions or through mediation, which avoids the stress and uncertainty of trial. Should litigation become necessary to protect your rights, however, Jennifer will go to court to advocate on your behalf.
