Child custody has evolved considerably
Children who have divorced parents must be the focus of both parents. It isn’t acceptable for a parent to try to pit the child against the other parent. If one parent does talk negatively about the other parent or tries to keep the child from the other parent, the child is the one who suffers the most. Even though it might not seem like it, a child custody agreement can oftentimes help to minimize the chance of the child suffering.
We know that the thought of having to go to court over who is going to have your child when can be difficult to consider. The fact of the matter is that child custody agreements can be worked out between both parents so that the agreement suits your child’s needs.
The good news is that child custody matters have evolved greatly over time. Gone are the days of the mother having the child most of the time while the father has to sit back as a bystander. Child custody cases these days place more of an emphasis on a shared parenting system that includes both parents having active roles in the child’s life.
Your child’s wellbeing must be the primary factor in the case. We know that you and your ex likely have ideas about how your child should be raised. If you and your ex can work together, you can truly put your child first. If not, then you will rely on the court to make determinations about your child custody agreement. Either way, we can help you to show your side of the case.
