Child-CustodyPreserving your relationship with your children during and after the separation or divorce process is of paramount importance. When child custody and visitation matters need to be decided, either as part of a divorce or independent of a divorce, it is important to have someone on your side who understands how the court approaches such matters in order to help you protect your relationship with your child.

The court will look primarily at the best interests of the child. Typically, the court will examine who has been the main caregiver for the child and the role that others, such as grandparents, have played in your child’s life so far. The goal in most cases is to provide continuity for the child.

The determination and resolution of child custody and visitation issues is critical to manage the parameters of your relationship with your child, such as how often you will see your child and the level of involvement you will have in his or her upbringing. You cannot take chances with what attorney you choose to represent you in this area of family law.

A factor that is a part of the considerations regarding establishing child custody and visitation is finances. The court will look at how much visitation the noncustodial parent has when determining child support. If the noncustodial is hosting the child more often, the court can lower the child support levels. This and other financial factors that may be impacted need to be considered during the resolution of child custody and visitation.
