Divorce & Child Custody
Going through divorce is often a very emotional, and stressful experience. This experience becomes even more difficult when legal issues are involved. For example, legal issues may include: custodial disputes, asset disputes, and in some cases, domestic abuse/violence. During these times, it’s important to have your rights and interests protected by someone who understands the legal process within the state.
Child custody has been an evolving legal matter over the last century. For instance, the father used to have absolute property rights to the children. Afterwards, the law shifted, and generally considered the mother as the preferred parent. In the modern day, the standard of child custody is “best interest of the child.” In other words, one parent cannot receive biological preference as the sole determining factor of custody.
