Child Custody Service in Tupelo, MS

The custody of a child is determined by a custody order. In the state of Mississippi, both physical and legal custody are considered. Physical custody refers to where the child lives and which parent is responsible for the child's day-to-day care, while legal custody involves decision-making authority over important elements of the child's life, such as healthcare, education, and religion.

A parent that is awarded sole custody has both legal and physical custody of the child and can make a majority of the decisions for that child. The non-custodial parent has visitation of the child and may still have some say in the decisions of the child.

The Law Office of Amanda Todd Daniels can assist in working through the custody order, enforcing the custody order, or challenging the custody order if you feel the child may be in jeopardy or danger. Services include:

Child Custody Agreements

Child custody can be one of the most difficult, contentious parts of a divorce. The amount of time a child spends with each parent is critical to the child's development and well-being, and determining what will be best for the child is essential. At Amanda Todd Daniels we understand that every parenting situation is unique, and we strive to create an agreement that focuses on the best interest of your child. We take this responsibility very seriously; we know that representation by an expert child custody attorney is critical to protecting both your rights and the rights of your child.

Child Custody Modifications

When circumstances warrant a change in child custody orders, it is necessary to petition the family court for a modification. Common situations that may warrant a modification of orders include relocation of either parent, child endangerment, and the wishes of the child as he or she gets older. Whether you are seeking a modification or trying to stop an unwanted modification, our attorneys will aggressively stand up for your rights and work to protect the best interests of your child.

Paternity

The Law Office of Amanda Todd Daniels provides representation for paternity fraud cases and believe the father's rights are equally important as the mother's. We strive to help our clients stand up for their rights in all types of family law matters they may be facing.

Father's Rights

Time with each loving parent can be critical to a child's well-being. The era of the mother being awarded more custody rights has shifted toward equality for both the father and mother of the child. We work with fathers to not only ensure that they get time with their children but also to secure their ability to exercise their parental rights.

Same-Sex Parent Rights

Same-sex parenting custodial agreements can present unusual challenges. The legal team at Amanda Todd Daniels stays at the forefront of legislation in this area so that we can provide expert legal representation. Visit our LGBTQ+ Family Law page to read more.
