Winning Child Custody During Your Divorce

Spouses have to deal with a variety of issues when they get divorced, but few understand how hard it will be to get child custody. Child custody during divorce is a stressful time for both parents. If a parent doesn’t try to get parental rights then they will have restricted time with their children until they are 18. Both custody and visitation may be taken away or limited, which prevents you, the parent, from seeing your children when they are minors. Protecting your rights to winning child custody during divorce begins by understand what you need to showcase to a judge to get the result you’re looking for.

Types of Custody

Many spouses will file for sole custody in divorce while others will settle for joint. Today, most courts will hesitate to grant sole custody unless it is absolutely necessary. If it must grant this sole custody to one parent, the court will usually still provide generous visitation rights to the other parent. However, when someone is not granted joint custody during divorce, there are major decisions that will have to be made regarding education and other topics that the non-custodial parent will have no right to.

Joint custody in divorce allows each parent to have the right to see their children. The courts usually grant this arrangement once parents begin to live separately even when a divorce isn’t final. A judge may also order joint physical custody, joint legal custody or sometimes both.

How is Custody Determined?

The decision to award custody will depend on the housing needs of the children, work schedules, finances, and other factors. A divorce lawyer can help you to win child custody during divorce by positioning you has the suitable caregiver. Divorcing parents will want to avoid a fight that takes place in court. This can be avoided with a parenting agreement. This will allow child custody to be settled outside of the courts. The parenting agreement will finalize all custody decisions in writing and is presented to a family court judge for approval.
