Child custody matters vary greatly based on the circumstances of the parents' relationship. These matters can be handled in mature ways, but sometimes contention makes the situation tense. No matter what kind of child custody case you are facing, you have to make it a point to keep your focus on your children.
In a recent blog post, we discussed some of the points that occur in a child custody case involving unmarried parents. This post is one that shows only a portion of the situation-specific considerations that might come up in a child custody hearing.
We know that you only want to ensure that your child has a stable life. The stability that your child needs might not be possible during the child custody battle. This is a primary reason why many parents want to hurry up and get the child custody issues resolved. While this is a good point, don't let your quest for a speedy resolution cloud your judgment about what you will agree to.
Child custody mediation is the resolution method that many parents prefer because you can have an active say in what happens. If you and your ex can come to an agreement, you might be able to get the case over with a bit faster than if you have to wait for a trial date. Parents who can't agree on the points of a custody agreement will usually have to battle things out in front of a judge who will make a calculated decision based on only limited knowledge of the child's habits and the circumstances of the case.
No matter which way your child custody case needs to be handled, we will help you to learn your options and assert your position.
