Children’s Issues

If your marriage is over, and you will want to obtain a divorce, we also know that children’s issues will have to be decided too, and that in most instances, custody, access and support will be the lion’s share of your divorce. As is discussed on our webpage concerning Children and Custody, child custody and visitation decisions will be based upon establishing an arrangement that is in the best interests of your children. There is no exhaustive list of factors that the court will use when determining custody. Instead, the court will consider the “totality of circumstances” surrounding what is in the best interests of your child(ren). We urge you to read our webpage on Child Custody. It took a long time to write, and contains a tremendous amount of helpful information.
