Iowa courts will always make their decisions based on what is in the best interests of the child or children involved. Courts generally favor joint legal custody of children unless there is some compelling reason why they shouldn't. This means that both spouses will be involved in the major decisions concerning their children's lives, such as education, medical care, and religious associations. Physical custody may also be joint though generally one parent will have primary care while the other will have a visitation schedule.

To get further information and sound legal advice about your specific situation regarding child custody, you should talk to the attorney at our firm at your earliest opportunity.
