Helping Families Find Child Custody Solutions
The decisions that you make during divorce have a profound impact on your children. When it comes to custody matters, our firm makes sure that the best interests of the child are always first. That being said, we also place a high priority on your rights as a parent. Our goal is to do everything we can to ensure that children maintain a healthy relationship with both parents while representing the best interests of our client.
Negotiating Child Custody Arrangements
We understand how emotionally charged child custody negotiations can be and do everything we can to minimize stress and conflict. When we can’t come to an agreement through negotiation, we will not hesitate to take a case to court.
When child custody arrangements got to court, judges will look at the following factors when determining custody:
- Ensuring that relationships with both parents are maintained
- The mental and physical health of the parents and the children
- The ability of each spouse to perform their duties as parents
- The ability of each parent to provide a safe home
- Parenting plans submitted by each parent
- The wishes of the child
Custody arrangements may result in sole custody, when the child lives full time with one parent who makes all decisions for the child, or joint custody. In joint custody, the child splits time between both households and both parents share decision-making responsibilities concerning the well-being of the children. Although the preference of the court is to have both parents remain involved in the lives of the children, every family dynamic is different. At Wyatt Law & Associates, LLC, we will make sure to work for the best interests of your children while representing your best interests as well.
