If You and Your Ex-Spouse Can’t Agree on Child Custody
In the case of divorce, it is often not the physical remnants of a marriage – the house, the cars, the boat – that couples fight over. It is almost always the children. Ideally, a divorcing couple can sit down and work together to hammer out a shared child custody arrangement that is in the best interest of the children.
Reality, however, is far, far different. One parent may seek sole custody, believing that the other parent is unfit to raise the children, or one spouse may want to move the children across the country to be closer to his or her family. A spouse could even seek custody primarily as a way to “get back” at the other spouse.
In cases where parents cannot work out an agreeable custody arrangement amongst each other, they will first have to go to mediation. If mediation doesn’t work, then the parents will have to make their case in front of a judge.
