Now that you have decided to get a divorce and have begun the legal process for doing so, it might feel like everything is on the line, especially if you have children. For a parent going through a divorce, children are often the most important asset they simultaneously wish to protect and fight over in custody battles.
Some couples may be able to avoid a child custody dispute by coming to a mutual agreement over the terms of the custody agreement. While it’s difficult to imagine what life would be like without having a child under one’s roof all the time, using this motivation to engage in a lengthy dispute will only create bitterness in an already emotionally charged time. Accepting this reality and working out an agreement that works for both parties and retains the loving, supportive environment that children have become accustomed to works for everyone in the long-run.
However, not every relationship ends amicably, and legal disputes about child custody, property division and alimony can drag out the divorce. Regardless of the type of family law issues one is facing, having an experienced attorney by one’s side to resolve complex disputes can be helpful and those at our law offices do just that.
We help couples going through all types of divorces and resolve their issues on the negotiating table or in the courtroom. Our aim is to provide the best solution for our clients and we work with them to achieve it. For more on child custody and other family law issues, visit our website.
