Child custody can be one of the most contentious aspects of any divorce. Every parent wants the best for their children, but parents may disagree on what “the best” actually is. When conflicts come up, whether it’s through a divorce or a custody suit, it can be difficult to find middle ground.
Child custody entails a lot more than having your child with you. It can include the right to determine your child’s primary residence, the right to attend school functions, the right to receive (or pay) child support, the right to make medical decisions, and many, many other rights and duties.
Choosing the right child custody attorney is an important decision that can have consequences that last far longer than the custody battle itself.
