Determining Child Custody

Determining Child Custody

If you are going through the divorce process, then one of the most serious issues you will need to face is determining who will have custody of your children. Studies show that the emotional trauma experienced in fighting for child custody is comparable to losing a child in death. If you are fighting for custody of your child, then you need skillful representation in your case that can provide you with the representation that you need in court.

The various elements of a divorce process can be decided in two different ways, either through peaceful mediation or hostile courtroom litigation. If you and your spouse are able to come to an agreement regarding this issue in mediation, then you may find the process to be easier. Mediation may even produce better results than you would get in court. There are cases, however, that require you to fight aggressively for your rights in court. When compromises cannot be made and you are unable to reach a solution in mediation, you must take your fight to court.

Representation for Family Law Issues

The decisions regarding child custody and other elements that affect the children involved will all be made by a judge in the best interests of the children. If you are able to convince the judge that you are able to better provide for your child, emotionally and economically, than your spouse, then you may have a much better chance at obtaining sole custody.

About Law Child Support

Law Child Support

If you have been through the divorce process, then you may have been assigned child support payments. These payments are designed to compensate for various costs of provision such as food, clothing, shelter, education, and health care. If you are not the custodial parent, then these support payments will supplement your ex-spouse’s income in order to ensure that your child’s needs are met. When determining child support and child custody, the courts will make its decisions based on the needs and best interest of the child.

While the ability to provide for the child is one of the serious factors considered by the court, there are some cases in which the custodial parent is unable to financially provide for their child on their own and requires financial assistance. If you are assigned child support payments, then you may experience various financial hardships that make these payments extremely difficult to provide. There are many types of financial hardship, such as losing a job, lowering income, and incurring other financial expenses.
