Get Help During or After a Divorce From a Custody Lawyer
Divorces are some of the most difficult types of Family Law cases to resolve. If child custody is an issue it is even more difficult. In most cases by the time the couple has filed for divorced they are focused more on the dispute than finding a resolution. This makes is hard to come to an agreement on splitting property, and even more difficult when it comes to child custody. It is always a good idea to seek legal counsel during a divorce, but it’s also a good idea to hire a Custody Lawyer. Divorce law is complicated in any case, having to deal with a divorce and fight for custody makes things much worse. There are a lot of factors that go into the decision the court makes, and it’s important to understand those factors.
One of the first things a court looks into is whether either of the spouses has a history of domestic violence. The age and overall health of the child or children is important too. If a child has special needs the availability of the parent will be considered. Whether the child has special needs or not the parent will have to be available for a reasonable amount of time. IF a parent is too busy to look after their child they will not be able to provide a healthy living environment. The child’s decision will also be considered, but in some cases the child is too young to make their own decisions.
In some cases one spouse makes it more difficult for the court to reach a decision. This kind of tactic should be stopped whenever possible. One of the most common ways for a spouse to attempt to prevent custody of a child is to provide defamatory information about the other parent. It’s important to have a lawyer to help prevent false or misleading information from being submitted to the court. Although there is nothing that can be done about a spiteful divorcee, a parent can get the help they need from a Custody Lawyer to fight for their rights to custody of their children.
