Why Special Needs Cases Are Different from Standard Custody Cases
Children with special needs often need to have their custody and visitation plans tailored to address the individual child’s issues. For one child, the unique factor might be the child’s need for receiving nutrition through tube feeding because of a neurological, pulmonary, cardiac, or other condition. Another child might struggle with transitions and need an atypical custody and visitation schedule. Sometimes, a sibling without special needs might get lost in the shuffle and need one-on-one time scheduled with each parent.
