Coming changes to the language of cases involving children

The State legislature has made some important changes to the words we use when the parties to a dissolution have common minor children.

Effective January 1, 2013 we will be talking about "legal decision making", "joint legal decision making", "sole legal decision making" rather than a designation of "custody", and much of the language we have used in family law matters will be changing.

We attorneys will be studying the changes to prepare for the future, and how to best represent our clients.
