CHILD CUSTODY & VISITATION
When children are involved in divorce or separation, legal battles frequently erupt over their custody and care. These issues can steer the course of the entire divorce case. Their contention often leads to lengthy delays, and it can exact an extreme financial toll.
As a parent, you understandably want to maintain a meaningful level of involvement in your child’s daily life and upbringing. Just because you and your ex-spouse or ex-partner are no longer together does not mean your relationship with your children should suffer.
Ultimately, however, child custody, child relocation and visitation decisions are based on what is best for the children. Their interests do not always line up with each parent’s desires. Nonetheless, the court, mediators, witnesses, guardian ad litem and other parties will all look to the children’s interests as the touchstone for crafting a workable custody arrangement.
