Child custody cases are very emotional and as such it is best to get legal advice before you take any action. Child custody cases will be decided on a number of factors, including the best interests of the child, the health and safety of the child, the child’s social and economic welfare, and the parties’ ability to cooperate in order to facilitate a smooth transition.

Divorce — What Happens When You’re In A Divorce?

A separation agreement is a contract between the partners where they decide on the custody of the children. The mother will likely spend more time with the child than the father does and the father will likely spend more time with the child than his wife does. The parents will usually decide on the custody of the children based on the children’s needs and what is best for them.

Having sole custody means that one parent will raise the child on their own, without the help of the other parent. Joint custody means that both parents will share time and responsibilities with the child. If neither parent is able to prove that they are fit to raise the child, the court will decide who will get custody.

If Your Ex-Spouse Won’t Raise Your Child

You will be surprised to find out how many couples who have been divorced still have the belief that their ex-spouse is not a fit parent. This is a serious mistake. In many states, it is possible to petition for custody. This will allow you to have your child returned to you and your ex-spouse to have visitation. It will be up to the court to decide who will be awarded custody.
