Often, when a couple gets divorced, their biggest concern is for the wellbeing of and rights to their children. Because of the emotional nature of child custody, the process can become complicated with disagreement. Many people look at custody as something you “win” or “lose,” which discourages mediation and compromise. At The Shaw Law Firm, LLC, we can help you discern the best course of action when settling custody disputes.

When it comes to custody, the court’s duty is to protect the best interests of the children. That means you can do everything that a parent should and still not gain custody simply because there is an option that better benefits the child.
There are multiple things to keep in mind when in the middle of a custody dispute:
Child custody disputes involve many issues, including who the child will live with, visitation schedules, transportation for visitation exchanges, medical and educational decision, extra-curricular activities and so many more. It is best if parents can work together to resolve these issues whenever possible. When you can’t reach an agreement, you will want to involve professionals to help you work through it. Letting a court decide your future is a last resort. Remember, you want to put your child’s needs first.
