Not all relationships and marriages last, but a relationship with your child is forever. You should never have to sacrifice your time and experiences with your own children to the process of divorce or breaking up with the mother or father of your children. Children have a right to equal love and affection from both parents. Yet, it can be difficult to determine what is in the best interests of each child when his or her parents separate.
The law can make this much more complicated, and it is far too common for parents and children to end up suffering from the process and the outcome. With a skilled family law attorney on your side, you can rest assured that everything is being done to ensure that you and your child are able to maintain the relationship that each of you deserves and needs to have with the other. Hiring a child custody lawyer could be the very best thing that you ever do to preserve your relationship and address custody, visitation, and support concerns, without falling victim to the tactics that are often used to keep loving parents from their children.
