How To Win Custody Of Your Child Prt 2
Nearly everyone who begins the process of getting custody of their child or children wants to know what their chances of winning are or what they can do to win custody of their kids. First and foremost, this isn’t necessarily about what parent comes out on top. Obviously if this is a case where one parent is a danger to the child or provides an unhealthy environment, physically and psychologically, it would be a matter of one parent winning custody. What the above point refers to is the fact that family law and deciding custody arrangements is about what is best for the child or children. Coming at this from this perspective, any parent going through the motions of court and/or attorneys would do well to prioritize what is important in their particular issue. This could mean a lot of different things. It could mean making a list of everything that needs to be addressed in the court room, comparing living situations between parents or having a professional third part come in to assess the well being of one parent, both parents or the children involved.
It’s hard to start this process, nobody is going to deny that. Whether you’re a mother or father there needs to be a process to organize what you have to do to accomplish your goal. What to do to get started, what to expect in the court room, what the difference between legal and physical custody, knowing when you’ve been served and how to respond; these are the things one needs to keep in mind and factor into any decision you might make and knowing what that decision means and the consequences it can can have. Aside from the logistical factors involved in these kinds of child custody or visitation issues, another equally important element to take into account is the emotional and psychological aspect of the people that are involved in a case like this; namely the children.
There’s a lot that goes into winning a child custody case. Knowing is half the battle and any knowledge you can gain before your court date or during the whole process will give you an edge. It’s an unfortunate truth that some parents will do everything they can to not let the mother or father get to see their child out of spite or anger. As a parent, it is devastating to not be able to be with your children. If you are faced with a vindictive ex, the best thing you can do is to be prepared to counter any claim they make in the court room. Being calm and rational will make a difference in your case if your ex is obviously blowing things out of proportion as a means to gain the judges favor.
Take some time and review our other posts on child custody and what is required to be successful. This is a very deep topic, with many variables to consider and evaluate in order to be prepared. Lastly, be reminded that “winning” isn’t just in the court room. We want to encourage parents that winning these disputes also includes being successful co-parents and remaining civil with each other after the decision has been made by the courts. To accomplish this requires a lot of self-control, humility, compromise, and selflessness. It may be difficult or even impossible to think about in some cases, but persevere. Your children, once they are grown, will be forever grateful and will become better people.
