Why Should I Hire An Attorney For Divorce?
Divorce is an emotional time for all involved especially the children. Fighting over a child in a divorce is one of the hardest and often most emotional aspects of the entire divorce. Prior to filing for child custody in a divorce, you need to know which type of child custody you want. The various types of child custody
you can receive during a divorce include physical custody, sole custody, joint custody, and legal custody.
Physical child custody in a divorce gives the right to have the child live with that parent. Sole child custody in a divorce gives the right to have the child live with one parent when the other parent is deemed unfit. Joint child custody in a divorce gives both parents the right have the child live with them. Legal child custody in a divorce gives that parent the right and the responsibility to make decisions about a child's rearing.
Fighting over a child in divorce is a complex manner and does need the expertise of a child custody and divorce lawyer.
With an attorney during your divorce, child custody can be explained as well as all other aspects such as visitation, insurance, and all other situations that may arise during the rearing of the child including education issues, medical bills, and even moving to another location with the child.
Fighting over a child in a divorce is never an easy process and the main concern of the court is the well-being of the child. In most cases, the court will choose the parent that can ensure a quality home life and is financially stable. A family lawyer
can help work with the parent to provide all the necessary information to ensure the court can see that the parent has what it takes to care for the child and that it would be in the best interest of the child to live with this parent. In other cases, where joint custody is the choice of both parents, lawyers can work with the parents to ensure their rights are protected and that both parents share custody equally. In the event that one parent desires sole custody, due to the other parent being unfit, the lawyer will be able to provide evidence that proves the unfitness of the parent, thus gaining sole custody of the child.
