Child Custody & Parenting Time Archives

Parental responsibility cases aren't always cut-and-dry

When it comes to divorce, issues dealing with the children are some of the most difficult to work through. These parental responsibility issues often pit the wishes of one parent against the wishes of the other parent. In some cases, the parents are able to negotiate an agreement that puts the child's interests first. That is the ultimate goal when we take on a child custody issue -- we want what is best for the child.

If, on the other hand, the allegations are true, there may be an investigation by child protective services, and the results are very likely to factor heavily into the court's final decision.

That's what had happened in this case that has, for now, been resolved.
