Legal assistance with an Orlando child custody matter

Few things can cause more disputes and disagreements than a child custody dispute. Parents who are no longer together as a couple will frequently do battle over visitation rights, who will be the custodial parent, which holidays the child will spend with what parent and more. In a perfect world, the best interests of the child will be the focus of everyone involved. Unfortunately, other issues tend to get in the way and it can get personal, contentious and acrimonious. With all that in mind, legal help is paramount in any child custody case.

In Florida, there is no automatic assumption that one parent will be granted custody over the other. In fact, the words "child custody" are not even used any longer. It is now preferred to be called "sharing." Parents who are parting ways and deciding on the child's living status can negotiate their own agreement or have the courts decide. If the parents are on friendly terms and can be cordial, then it might be worthwhile to try to come to an agreement on their own. The court can sift through issues that are holding up the process or deal with a couple that is fighting over the custody matter.

Numerous factors go into the child custody situation such as the following: the residences and distances between the parents; which parent the child will spend weekends and summers with; where the exchanges will be made; what the costs will be regarding various issues; the work situations of the parents; the child's schooling; how the child's homework will be handled; religious observance and holidays; extracurricular activities; medical care and many other things.

Parents undoubtedly want the best for their children. When a custody dispute is in progress or there are matters that an otherwise agreeable couple cannot resolve, having legal assistance is imperative. Contacting a lawyer who is knowledgeable, caring and understands the various aspects that go into a child custody case is essential.
