Protecting your rights as a parent in child custody cases

On Behalf of | May 26, 2015 | Child Custody

Child custody is a touchy subject for some people. In some cases, people think that the court always leans toward giving a mother custody of the children just because she is a woman. While that might have been the case in the past, these days it isn’t so. Just last week, we discussed some of the points about why a mother might be awarded custody.

When it is time for the court to decide the allocation of parental responsibility, there are several points that are considered. There is no one-size-fits-all arrangement for the court to use. Instead, the court will work to determine what is best for the child.

We know that you want to be a part of your child’s life. We understand that you want to raise your child. We can help you fight for your rights in court. You might be asked to go through mediation to determine child custody matters. Even in that case, we can help you to present your side.

There are several benefits associated with mediation. You will be able to work with your child’s other parent to determine parenting time. You can also work together to decide who has what decision-making responsibilities. Instead of the court ordering how these aspects of your child’s life will be handled, you and your ex can make the decisions.

No matter how your child custody case will have to be handled, we can help you learn your options. We can help you if you must go through mediation. We can also help you if you end up having to go through the court process.
