Family Law - Child Custody Issues
One of the most difficult areas of law is in the Family law area where children are involved. It is difficult due to the emotions involved of the parents. Sometimes the parents can be determined to win and score points against their former partner. This can be extremely traumatic for the children of the relationship.
The most important aspect for children and what the Court wants is to be able to determine what is in the best interest of the child. Usually this will mean that a child has a right to have a loving supportive relationship with both parents. There may be reasons why this is not possible, and it is important to explore all aspects of this with an experienced family lawyer.
It is no longer the case that the courts will side with one parent over the other due to gender. The court will take into account many facts to determine what is in the child's best interests. This will include insuring that the child's needs are placed over and above those of the parents. Depending on the child's age, the child's wishes will carry some weight. However it is important that the child is not adversely influenced by either parent or any other person involved in the child's life.
The best outcomes in family law are achieved when both parents are able to put their differences aside and work together. This will mean ultimately less expenses legally for everyone involved.
