When adults get a divorce, there are many different matters that have to be handled. One of these is the child custody case. Unfortunately, the most precious people in the parents’ life are going to be at the center of what could shape up to be a very contentious battle. Parents must think carefully about how the divorce and the decisions that are made will impact the children.
We understand that in the midst of the emotional turmoil of a divorce you might not be able to think clearly right now. We can help you find the points that you need to think about so that you can determine how you want to move forward with each aspect of the child custody case. This means everything from coming up with a schedule to deciding who will make decisions for the child’s life.
As you go through this process, you should take the time to learn about all of the options you have. Oftentimes, these cases involve what you want and what your ex wants. You will likely have to find a solution somewhere in the middle so that your children can have what they need.
Many child custody cases are decided through mediation, but when that isn’t possible, the case can go through a trial. Parents often find that working with an ex about these matters is difficult but when they realize how much input they have when they decide on things in this way, they put their differences aside and make an agreement that is the child’s best interests.
