When to Hire a Child Custody Lawyer

Custody cases involve in-depth, personal information about you, your estranged spouse or partner, and your children. In fact, almost every detail of your life, past and present, comes into play, as the judge’s one goal is to decide on a visitation and custody arrangement (sole or joint) that is in the best interests of the child or children involved. Judges look at a multitude of factors during the case including:

  • Physical Condition, & Emotional Health of the parents or guardians
  • Employment Status of Parents
  • Parents’ Financial Standing (current debt & Ability to Provide)
  • Children’s Ages and Needs
  • Childs Physical and Emotional Health
  • Child’s Wishes
  • Stability of Current Living Conditions
  • Domestic Violence, Alcohol and Drug abuse
  • Personalized Support throughout your case
