Child Custody

When a marriage breaks down, the children, if any, are often caught in the middle of a custody battle where one parent seeks to obtain the right to maintain their children in their homes. Divorcing or separating couples are encouraged to discuss and enter into parenting agreements between themselves. But not all spouses are able to communicate in a positive manner while undergoing a divorce, making it a challenge to come up with an arrangement that is fair not only to each divorcing spouse but more importantly, for the children. A family lawyer with proven experience in child custody cases can provide important legal advice and fight for your rights to maintain or obtain child custody.

Child Custody Factors

When parties are unable to agree with one another on the terms of a mutually acceptable parenting agreement, the family court can issue orders on child custody and parenting time based on factors such as:

  • The age and health of the child
  • Ability of the parents to care for the child
  • Emotional ties between the parents and the child
  • History of family violence or substance abuse
  • The child’s ties to school, home, and his or her community

It’s important to speak to an experienced family law attorney about your situation before entering into parenting agreements or seeking a court order for child custody. Your lawyer can provide appropriate advice on specific matters that are embodied in a proposed parenting agreement and if necessary, they can fight for your rights and for your child’s best interests in a custody lawsuit.
