In this day and age, child custody can get very complicated. It is my the goal of Jill Landau, Attorney at Law, to help simplify this process for you.
When you are the custodial parent, and you receive papers in the mail opposing the current custody arrangements, it can be very scary, and emotions can get the best of you.
Take a deep breath. The courts duty is to do what is in the best interest of the child. Knowing what to expect can help calm your nerves and tame your emotions.
What should I expect the judges decision to include in the Youngstown, Ohio and surrounding areas?
1. The judge will determine who will be the custodial parent of the child. Keep in mind that sometimes the best interest of the child isn’t for one parent to have sole custody of the child, but for both parents to have joint custody of the child.
2. The judge will also determine a visitation schedule, including holidays and weekends, when the non-custodial parent is entitled to visitation.
As a divorce attorney, I understand that divorce is a very hard time for everyone involved, however,
From the standpoint of the judge, parents should not be bashing each other during a child custody hearing.
Instead, the parent seeking full custody should focus on proving that he or she is the better parent.
You can present yourself as the better parent in Youngstown Ohio by focusing on two factors:
1.The physical well-being of the child, such as, routine, sleeping habits, eating schedule, and after school activities. Encourage a healthy life style.
2. The Psychological well-being of the child – Making sure that the child has access to liberal visitation with the other parent.
