Child custody matters are often very difficult matters for parents. The child’s best interests have to be placed at the heart of the case. But, what happens if the parents don’t agree on what is in the child’s best interests? In some cases, the parents might have to turn to the court to have the court decide what is in the child’s best interests. We know that the thought of having to go through a child custody case isn’t a pleasant one, but we are here to help you through it.
If you are in the midst of a child custody battle, there are a few things you should remember. The first point is that your child shouldn’t be used as a pawn in the case. You and your ex might have to work together to work things out, but your child shouldn’t ever be used as a bargaining chip.
Another factor that you should remember is that compromise is often the best solution to child custody issues. You and your ex know your child. If you and your ex can work out a custody agreement, you can factor in your child’s unique needs in a way that the court can’t. If you have to go to trial for the matters at hand, the court might not be able to take those needs into account.
