Child custody paves the path toward the future

Parents don't have an easy go of things when they decide to divorce while children still live in the home. The parents will have to answer the child's questions about the divorce. They will have to deal with the emotional issues and logistics issues that having two households can cause. As we said last week, even amicable divorces are difficult for children to cope with.

Even though it is often hard to do, it is important for parents to step back from the situation and think about what is truly best for their child. In many cases, children need both parents to help raise them. The child should be able to count on the financial support, emotional support and physical support of Mom and Dad. Having secure healthy children is usually the goal of parents who are going through a divorce.

That doesn't mean that child custody matters are easy. Just because the parents agree on the desired outcome doesn't mean they agree on the best path to that outcome. We can help you to present the path that you feel is best for your child.

There are two types of custody you should know about -- legal and physical. Legal custody basically means decision making and physical custody means where the child lives. In many cases, parents will share legal and physical custody.

Shared custody, however, might not be desired if one parent has been convicted of abuse or domestic violence. The same is true if a parent has an alcohol or drug problem. In those cases, shared custody might not be desirable.

The bottom line is that you have a right to present your side of the child custody case. We can help you present your side.
