We answer several questions about child custody in our FAQ’s on Divorce:
I have done some things in the past that I fear will hurt my case for custody.
Is there anything I can do?
I had an extramarital affair. Will my spouse get custody of the children?
I want to move away from the area after the divorce and take the children.
Will the courts allow that?
How much child support will I get?
Each of these questions is very important, and we recommend reading the
answers to them in the Divorce FAQ’s.
We could write a long essay on all the factors that couples and the courts
consider when making custody decisions. But we have discovered that every
custody situation is unique, and that solutions are not as simple as the
court's "one size fits all" formulas. Parents are different; work schedules
vary; ages of children require different needs.
We would like to discuss the many variables in your particular situation.
Then we can customize a plan that places your family's needs - not a
formula from the legislature - at the center of the process.
