WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CHILDREN’S MATTERS?
Not only for women, but usually for both parts involved in a separation or divorce, the most dramatic aspect that is part of the process is surely the children. However, it is important for women to leave feelings and emotions aside and think of the best decision for their children. If you are in this position of having to face a legal procedure that involves your children, then the right decision is to look for advice from experienced professionals that can help guide throughout the process and make it quick and less traumatic for your children.
Frequently, the response to who will obtain custody will be determined by the process that the parties involved in the application for custody of the child follow. In most cases in which parents come to an out-of-court settlement about custody of their child and visits, the answer to this question depends on the parents themselves, usually with the intervention of lawyers, counsellors or mediators. If the parents, in a custody dispute, do not negotiate some type of agreement, then the decision on custody will rest with a court, usually a family judge. Here at VIC Family Lawyers we take the serious commitment of helping you avoid any extra expenses and undue stress that comes together with these legal issues.
