Past Experiences With Your Child
One important issue that can arise during divorce is domestic violence. Bad or harmful situations involving your children in the past can seriously harm your case if you don't plan ahead. We will help you minimize facts that may hurt your child custody case, including:
- Protective orders
- Restraining orders
- Abuse by either party, either physical or sexual
- Past criminal behavior
If you have any of these negative factors in your past, it is best to plan for them before filing divorce. We will work together to protect your right to custody or visitation despite the presence of these issues.
On the other hand, strong showings of positive interactions with your children can help your arguments during child custody disputes. This information is equally valuable during divorce.
Prepare for Divorce and Related Issues
When you inform us of problems that may affect child custody, we work aggressively to protect your rights. We will complete background checks on both parties and work to resolve the issues early to prevent them from having a detrimental effect on your case.
A foreseeable change of circumstance should be addressed before the custody hearings begin. Common changes of circumstances include changing jobs or moving away, your ability to support your child, the needs of your child and the lifestyle of your child. We get involved in your divorce early to address your change of circumstance so your spouse doesn't use it against you in divorce proceedings.
