Jefferson County Attorney Tips for Handling Child Custody Cases

Child custody cases are incredibly sensitive, and there are usually heavy emotions and anger that can make the proceedings more difficult on everyone involved.  When trying to win full or partial custody, there are some things that you can do to increase your chances for success.  Read on for the top Jefferson County attorney tips on how you can win your custody case.

When looking at your case, the court takes where you live into account when it comes to the child’s quality of life.  One of the biggest things you can do to improve your chances of being awarded the custody you deserve is to make sure you have a nice home life setup for your children and yourself.  It’s best to find something that is near their current location and their school or daycare.  Just because your marriage has ended, that doesn’t mean that you need to make a big move out of town or to a new state.  Make it easier on yourself and your children by choosing something that will work best for everyone.

Child support is another big issue in child custody cases and it can create a lot of tension between separating couples when one thinks the other is getting more support than they deserve.  Don’t try to use custody as a reason to get more child support – it’s a waste of time, and you aren’t likely to get much more in the end.  Arguing over every last dime and spending money on attorney fees to do so simply isn’t worth it.

The most important thing to remember in child custody cases is that it’s crucial to keep the child’s best interested in mind.  Stay involved in your child’s healthcare, their school and their relationships.  Be mindful of how you speak of them and your ex in court, as that will definitely have an impact on the outcome.  By remaining civil and thinking calmly, you’ll have the best chance for winning the custody you are seeking.
