Many factors impact child custody cases

Child custody cases usually require that the two parents are at least civil toward each other. Some parents try to flex their muscles in these cases, which can lead to significant issues in the resolution options. One area that could lead to contention is when there is a question about paternity. When there are questions regarding paternity, the entire child custody case might grind to a halt while the test results are pending.

In our previous blog post, we discussed how one man is on the hook for child support for a child who isn't his child. The issue here is that there wasn't a paternity test done.

The paternity matter is only one of the ones that you need to think about when you have a child custody case pending. Other factors include where the child will live, what the parenting time schedule will be, who is going to pay for child support and who will make decisions for the child.

If you and your ex are able to work together, you can get all of these matters resolved through negotiation. This can help you come up with terms that will be easier for you to live with.

Of course, this isn't possible in all cases. You might have to present your case to the court to get solutions to the issues that plague your case. This would mean that the court has to make the final ruling.

We understand that your children are the most important people in your life. We can help you find out what choices you have to get the child custody case resolved in the way that is best for them.
