Whether a couple is married and going through the divorce process, or unmarried and going through a breakup, nothing is more important than the relationship between parents and their children. If both parties cannot decide on joint custody, it will be left to the courts to lay out child custody plans. Usually this decision is more difficult than one would think, but the most important consideration is that the child’s best interests are taken to heart.
When a court makes a decision on custody, they must hear all of the varying factors that could result in one parent being less qualified than the other. An objective professional may even be hired to interview each party and make suggestions about what a custody agreement should look like. Expert advice is typically not taken lightly and can make a big difference in where the child is placed and when. Through this time it is extremely important to have an experienced child custody attorney to prepare you for this process and present crucial information to the court.
