Child custody can't be rushed or delayed

Your children count on stability to feel secure. When you are going through a divorce, the stability is taken away. Giving your children a new plan for their life during a divorce is crucial so that they don't suffer. It is important for them to be able to settle into a new routine as quickly as possible.

We know that you are probably ready for the entire divorce to be done with and that you are ready to see the end of child custody matters. While we understand that you need things done quickly, it is important that you don't rush the process because doing so might end up meaning that your child's best interests aren't met.

At the same time, you can't lag when it comes to child custody. Taking too long to give your child the stability he or she needs can be just as devastating as trying to rush through everything. Instead, you have to go at a pace that allows you to make the best decisions for your child.

If possible, you and your child's other parent should try to come to an agreement about your child. This lets you take your child's unique characteristics, needs, and desires into account. That often isn't possible when you have to rely on a judge to make decisions for you.

We understand that this is a very trying time for you. We know that you want to do what is best for your child. We are here to help you with your child custody case no matter what legal method is being used to resolve the case. We can help you if you go to a trial or if you go through mediation. Your rights and your child's needs are our focus.
