Child custody is probably the most difficult issue for most parents to resolve. Unfortunately. Now, the court will decide for the parents if you cannot make up your mind after negotiating together, and the court is going to look as many factors as there are, there's no limit.
And the focus will always be for the court what is in the best interests of the child. And it's very difficult, very tiring and traumatic for people to go through a custody battle.
So I always recommend to people that we spend a tremendous amount of time trying to negotiate a full and fair settlement.
Kinds of custody
Now, essentially, there are two kinds of custody in general. Sole custody and joint custody.
Sole custody means that only one parent will determine things such as decisions centered around health, education and religion.
Joint custody means that both parents must come to a joint decision regarding those issues.
Solving the matter
Now, there are many ways to resolve the natural conflict, incorporating joint custody into your agreement by putting in certain other things that you can do prior to making a decision. And the reality is most of the time a a good lawyer and a good client will be able to come to an agreement with the other side.
So that this way you don't have to go through the custody litigations, which can be extremely traumatic, not only for the parents, but for the children as well.
