Most parents going through a divorce agree that their children are their primary concern. They want to make sure their children have happy, stable homes while maintaining a positive relationship with both parents.
Determining the right custody agreement for your family isn’t as easy as “I’ll take them this week and you can have them next week.” You need to make decisions about which parent will be responsible for certain aspects of the children’s upbringing, who has the right to make final decisions about the child’s medical, educational, and other needs, and more. You also must determine the proper child support arrangement to distribute the financial responsibility for your kids. When you’re already going through the emotional process of divorce, making life-altering plans like this in a rational way isn’t an easy task.
