Whether clients are attempting to negotiate child custody rights through a property settlement agreement or allowing the court to make the determination, it is important to understand the various types of custody. They are as follows.
The best approach is for the parties to attempt to work out a property settlement agreement that also deals with the issue of child custody. Hiring an attorney with experience in these kinds of negotiations can go a long way toward ensuring that the child’s best interests are met and both parents are satisfied with the arrangements.
If the parties cannot agree on child custody and a visitation plan, then the court makes the determination on its own. This is not an ideal situation since a judge, an uninvolved third party, has the power to make important decisions. As with most family law matters regarding children, the judge is guided by what is considered to be in their best interest.
Retaining an experienced Fredericksburg divorce attorney who is knowledgeable about the factors a judge must consider is critical when the parties cannot agree. Our Fredericksburg family law attorney has the litigation and mediation experience necessary to protect and advocate for clients’ parental interests and ensure that the appropriate amount of child support is granted to the custodial parent.
