The divorce process is likely one of the hardest things you will ever have to go through in your life. If you have children with your spouse, the process can be even more difficult. You and your ex-spouse may not agree on what is best for the children in terms of where they live, what school they should attend and how often they should split their time between the two of you. You may also disagree about child support and how much your ex-spouse should be receiving for this.
At our law firm, we understand the challenges that come with determining child custody arrangements and child support payment schedules and we are here to help. We work to evaluate your child's physical, financial and emotional needs and give you a realistic picture of what to expect in terms of custody. In many cases, both parents are capable of caring for the children, making them excellent candidates for joint custody. However, if one parent struggles with physical or mental health issues, or is otherwise unable to raise the child effectively, the child may be better off with a schedule where they spend more time with one parent.
While we are going through this process, we will not lose sight of the emotional needs of your children. Divorce can take its toll on children, especially if their parents are not getting along. We do our best to make the process as smooth as possible for your entire family, and try to help you move forward in your role as co-parent.
Dealing with child custody issues can be difficult, but our law firm works with our clients and their family members in order to try to get the best result for the family.
