Children, the most precious asset in any divorce, are often caught in the middle of the battle between divorcing parents. The law office of Susan D Stuart helps clients resolve their child custody issues with fair, livable, and workable solutions. The ultimate goal of a custody case is to act in the best interest of your child. While both parents often want to retain custody, it is important to make sure that your child is living with the parent that will provide him or her with the most supportive, caring, and nurturing environment.
Factors Influencing Child Custody
The child’s age, gender, mental and physical health
Each parent’s mental and physical health
The relationship between the child and each parent
Each parent’s ability to provide daily care
The child’s regular routine
Each parent’s lifestyle
Each parent’s ability to accommodate the child’s educational needs
Any history of child abuse
The child’s preference (generally considered when the child is of mature age)
Custody disputes and the establishment of an agreement can be technically difficult to navigate, but perhaps more difficult is the emotional strain on the parties. Susan D Stuart can help by taking an objective view and taking action on what is in your child’s best interests regarding parenting arrangements.
