Are you thinking about pursuing full child custody rights?

If you and your child’s other parent have parted ways, you may have questions about your child’s custody situation. Increasingly, courts across America are opting to place children in shared custody situations. For many children, this kind of arrangement is ideal. They can see both of their parents on a regular basis and maintain healthy relationships with both of them as well.

However, a shared custody arrangement does not suit the needs of every child. Sometimes, only one parent chooses to remain in a child’s life. Other times, one of the child’s parents is abusive or is otherwise unfit. In these situations, it may be unsafe for a child to have both parents remain in his or her life.

If you are thinking about pursuing full custody rights of your child, you likely find yourself in one of these two situations. In general, it is best to seek the guidance of an experienced family law attorney in your area before determining whether you will indeed seek full child custody rights. An attorney can explain the specific policies and regulations that family law judges are compelled to enforce within your state. An attorney will also be able to explain how these policies and regulations may affect your case.

Finally, an attorney will be able to help you make an informed decision about your child custody situation and will ultimately be able to advocate on behalf of you and of your child’s best interests. As you move forward, it is important to understand that the “child’s best interests” is a standard that your case will likely be judged upon.
