A child custody dispute can often become one of the most intensely fought issues when the parties cannot agree. When both parents can care for the children and are able to discuss and agree on issues regarding the children, then the parents should both have custody of the children. If one of the parents is unable to appropriately care for the children or the parents are unable to discuss issues regarding the children, then it is often best that one of the parents have custody of the children. When discussing custody, we often refer to these two alternatives as Joint Custody or Sole Custody.
There are a number of factors that are considered when determining custody of the children. Often custody of the children is won or lost long before the matter is ever heard at trial. When fighting for custody, it is very important that the appropriate steps and measures are taken to ensure that you are in the best possible position throughout the litigation process.
