Pursue The Custody Option That Is Best For Your Children
During the midst of your divorce, emotions can heavily impact your decisions. But doing what’s right for your children might require you to set aside your anger or frustration.
If you are going through a particularly challenging custody battle, reach out for our guidance. Here at A. Frazho Law Office, PLLC, we have the skills to help you navigate difficult family legal matters and simplify custody issues.
What A Judge Will Look At If You Go To Court
Custody rights will not always go to the mother after a dissolution. In fact, Michigan recognizes and encourages joint custody whenever possible. And plenty of fathers take on the role of primary caregiver. But ultimately, if you and your spouse are unable to agree on custody, the court will step in.
The judge will determine an arrangement based on your children’s best interest, considering factors such as:
- What the children want if they are old enough to decide
- The relationship the children have with each parent
- Your and your spouse’s mental and physical health
- If a history of domestic violence existed in your home
- Which home environment would be more stable
- If the children need to move or change schools
- Any special needs your children may have
- The rights of extended family members to have contact
- Any evidence of drug use, alcohol dependency or abuse
Because of this, false accusations can prevent you from having a relationship with your children. Let us protect your rights.
Consider Negotiating First With Our Mediation Services
In truth, we encourage negotiation and mediation to allow you and your partner to have more control over the outcome. However, we understand that this route is not suited to everyone. Should this be the case, we are prepared to fight on your behalf.
