A PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY & GENERAL PRACTICE LAW FIRM

Child Custody

Ideally, when a married couple files for divorce, both parties will be on good terms — especially when children are involved. On these grounds, hiring a family lawyer to guide parents through the divorce process is key. However, when a child custody battle is initiated, hiring a child custody lawyer may also be necessary. While there are parents who will mutually agree to the shared custody of their children, this is not a reality for everyone.

The Do’s for Winning a Child Custody Battle

  • Hire a Child Custody Lawyer

Often, individuals seek to represent themselves during a child custody battle. However, doing so can leave room for error, which can cause a court to rule against an eligible parent. Parents are always in the driver’s seat when represented by a child custody lawyer serving the county in which they live.

  • Show the Court Who You are as a Parent

When a parent is in court, they might feel inclined to tell a white lie in order to win the custody battle. The problem with this is that, should they later be ousted for lying, it can backfire on them, making the court favor the other party instead — and with good reason. Telling the truth is the honorable thing to do, and usually has positive effects on an individual’s case.

The Don’ts for Winning a Child Custody Battle

  • Don’t Coach Your Children on What to Say in Court

While it is a given that children may feel uncomfortable in court, coaching them on their talking points isn’t going to alleviate some of the pressure they feel. The chances are that, if a child has been instructed on what to say, it will be obvious to the court, and this can be detrimental to one’s case.

  • Don’t Get on the Judge’s Bad Side

Whether a parent is standing in front of the judge for child support reasons or fighting for child custody, it pays off to be standing on the judge’s good side. Individuals who are disrespectful, unorganized, missing paperwork, or not represented by a child custody lawyer can quickly lose favor in the judge’s eyes. In addition, any parent who violates direct orders from a judge is also playing with fire, as this behavior plays a significant role in the judge’s verdict.
