There are many legal issues that families may have to deal with in life, and one of them is child custody. When two parents don’t see eye to eye, it is normal for them to dispute over which parent should get what type of custody of their child.
Although some may feel as though one parent should only be awarded visitation or not be able to see the child at all, it is important that parents take a close look at all of their custody options before they decide the type they want to request.
Here are a few reasons why parents will want to consider all custody options:
- One option may be more beneficial to the child.
- One option may be more beneficial to both the parent and the child.
- Courts may feel as though another option is better than what the parent wants.
Parents only have a few options when it comes to what type of custody they will be awarded. Even if they are trying to work together to come up with an arrangement, ideally, the best way to go about things is to put their wants aside and focus on what is in the best interests of the child. However, this is something that parents may have a hard time with, which may be why many will ultimately have to let the courts decide for them.
When two parents disagree about how to handle child custody, there is never any telling how things will end. Whether they decide to figure things out for themselves or let the courts decide, at some point, they will have a decision about what type of custody each parent will have. Those currently dealing with any child custody related matter will want to contact an attorney to assist them with their case. An attorney from the Law Office of Michael D.
