Top 5 Things to Know About Child Custody Cases

Child Custody Attorney McKinneyIt’s no surprise that child custody cases can be extremely tough for all parties involved. However, knowing a few important things will serve to make this situation easier on you and your family:

Talk to a lawyer. One of the worst mistakes that people make in child custody situations is making decisions without consulting a lawyer. Trust us – child custody issues are too tricky and emotionally-driven for anyone to handle without having professional advice from a trusted and knowledgeable source. Coming to a decision in your child custody situation without a lawyer will likely spell serious trouble down the road.

Know the terminology involved. It’s important to take note of the terminology surrounding your child custody case. There are three important terms to know that will come up in your case – sole custody, joint custody, and visitation. Learn the difference between these three terms to ensure clarity.

Try to consider what the judge is thinking about. You should know that judges will always attempt to do what’s in the best interest of the child – they’re thinking about trust and care, first and foremost. Who can be trusted to best care for the child, and who is the primary caretaker? These questions and more will be at the forefront of the judge’s mind.

The child’s preferences will be considered. This is important to note – judges will always take into consideration what the child wants. This will almost certainly have an impact on the outcome.

Child custody cases are tough, but you will get through it. This is one of the hardest court proceedings to endure, and it will be tough, but it will get better – once the dust has settled, things will eventually be okay.
