Addressing Child Custody And Visitation Issues In Your Family
Child custody is probably one of the most difficult family law issues. Parents usually agree on the importance of protecting children’s well-being, but they often find themselves unable to find common ground on how to share custody. Factors such as relocation, child alienation, financial contributions and the amount of time to be allotted to each parent are reasons for many contested court hearings.
Whether you are approaching divorce or seeking a child custody arrangement as an unmarried parent, our knowledgeable family law attorney and staff at KKG Law can help you position yourself for a strong outcome in a child custody dispute.
Prepare Well For Negotiations, Mediation Or A Trial
Your parent-child relationship may be at stake in a custody case. We can provide step-by-step guidance on how to strengthen your case. For example, you can:
- Document time that you have spent and are currently spending with your child
- Take your child to doctors’ appointments, parent-teacher conferences, extracurricular sports practices and games, music lessons and visits with grandparents
- Keep a log of specific decisions that you make, conversations that you have and shopping trips that you take with your child
- Avoid disparaging the other parent when you are with your child. Honor their parent-child relationship.
Remember, the judicial system may tend to function in a manner that favors one gender or parent over the other. It may not be fair, but it is important to guard against this tendency. You should be represented by an attorney who will aggressively advocate on your behalf and the interests of you and your child.
