Putting Family First For Child Custody Issues

Keep in mind, the courts will ultimately make a custody decision based on "the best interests of the child." This doesn't mean that there aren't a number of other options to consider as you go through the process of determining custody, visitation and creation of a parenting time plan with your lawyer.

Important factors to consider may include custody evaluations, your child's work with a therapist who can assist with adjusting to a new schedule, or even having your child tested for issues in school. Seeking therapy and counseling for a child during adjustment to life after divorce has proven long-term benefits. At the Law Office of Hollie A. Lemkin, we encourage many of our clients to consider this option.

Another resource would be co-parenting classes, which are excellent learning tools for parents. These classes teach effective communication skills for co-parenting after divorce, and how to focus communications strictly on the needs of the child.
