Do You Need a Durham Attorney to Help With Child Custody Issues?
Dealing with legal issues regarding child custody and child visitation can be a tough time for all involved. After a divorce, many times both parties want to take care of the children, and it may be hard to come to an agreement as far as what is best for your child. Every state has different laws concerning this situation, but all laws focus on doing what is in the best interests of the child. This usually means allowing the child some form continued access to both parents. It also means the court will look at different factors, such as who can provide the best and most stable home, to decide what the custody arrangement should be.
Traditionally, the most responsible, capable and willing party has been awarded custody of the children while the other party is most oftentimes granted child visitation rights. Child support and other factors also tend to favor the party that receives majority custody of the children because of the financial and time commitment associated with raising kids. The best option, however, is for the parents to work through their difficulties and mend their relationship. In some cases, this just isn’t an option. So if you need information regarding child custody, please contact your local Durham Attorney.
