The involvement of child custody and visitation in divorce proceedings can be physically and emotionally disturbing. Not only for the parent but also for the child involved. When couples divorce, they have to turn to a family court to reach an agreement, keeping the child’s best interest in mind. Parents have a great responsibility of managing their child’s development even if their marriage is ending. You may think that it will be entirely easy for you and your divorcing spouse to reach an agreement regarding your child(ren). However, the situation can turn rather tricky, especially when you want to have full or partial custody. And sometimes, it may be that you wish to have increased visitation time with your children.
Child custody is often tricky if you believe that your divorcing partner is not fit to raise the children properly. This belief may be due to several reasons. Such reasons include unstable home life, physical and social conduct of the other parent, inability to provide financial care for the children, and many others. You may also disagree with how the other parent wants to raise your children, regarding factors such as religion, education, or even medical care. To protect your child, you need to prove to the court that the other parent is unfit to take custody of the children. Your attorney will require several pieces of evidence to convince the judge to rule in your favor.
