During or after a divorce, the most important issues that center around children are:
- Who has physical custody of the child?
- Who makes the primary life decisions for the child?
They are issues worthy of serious inquiry and attention, requiring an experienced child custody attorney to help you make the decision in the best interest for your children. Catherine Casto knows exactly what that entails as she has served as guardian ad litem in Superior and Juvenile Courts.
Physical and legal custody of a child creates sensitive, serious and complex issues. At the end, Courts and parents should and hopefully will focus on the child's best interests, not the parents. But that is little more than a hollow slogan if you do not have a child custody attorney who will aggressively and diligently prepare the case to get the question properly answered.
In situations like these, where children are at the center of the discussion, emotions and feelings can run rampant. It is so crucial to have a child custody attorney who can stay focused on the plans and goals laid out for the children involved without letting the emotional intensity of the situation affect their decisions.
Ultimately, all domestic matters are considered on a case-by-case basis within a framework allowing for broad judicial discretion. Call our child custody attorney to set up a personal meeting to discuss your case.
