How do I make arrangements for child custody and visitation?

Child custody or visitation arrangements can be complicated and can depend on several factors, including whether paternity has been established, where the child and other parent live, and whether there already is a court order in Iowa or another state that sets out terms of custody and visitation. You should talk to an attorney.
