Child custody is one of the tougher and altogether more emotional aspects of a divorce. At Holstrom, Block & Parke, APLC, our top priority is to encourage our clients to put their children first as divorce can have a serious and potentially lifelong impact on them.
Unfortunately, co-parents often have differing views on the definition of “best interests,” which is typically what leads to highly contested legal proceedings. This is where our experienced family law attorneys can help. We seek to pursue solutions that put your child’s needs first, without compromising your rights as a parent.
Whenever children are involved in a divorce, custody must be established to protect their best interests. Many co-parents will seek to find an agreement through mediation, which can seriously help to reduce the ugliness of a custody battle. If you are unable to reach an agreement through mediation, the case will be heard by a family law judge.
In every case, legal and physical custody must both be determined:
Should your case be brought before a judge, it is important to understand what factors can influence his or her decision. Ultimately, the number one concern of the judge will be the child’s best interests.
