Create A Child Custody Agreement That Works For Your Child

At Riley Family Law, I understand that child custody is a sensitive issue. Your child needs to grow up in a safe and loving home. The best way to ensure that this happens is by negotiating with your spouse to come up with a mutually agreed-upon child custody arrangement. I can walk you through every step of the process to make sure you’re comfortable along the way. At Riley Family Law, I can help you file legal paperwork and speak up for your rights in court. If you and your spouse are not able to come to an agreed-upon custody arrangement, the matter is turned over to the court.

How Does A Judge Decide Who Gets Custody?

The court always begins by determining if a 50-50 split in parenting time is feasible. Because of factors such as job demands, the location of homes relative to the children’s schools and other factors, most custody arrangements are not 50-50. The family law judge will look at the specific circumstances of your situation and take several factors into account before making a final decision. These include:

  • Each parent’s financial situation
  • The living conditions of each parent’s home
  • The child’s relationship with each parent
  • The mental and physical health of each parent
  • Any health needs the children may have
  • Any history of abuse or neglect

If your child custody case lands in court, having an attorney at your side makes it much more likely that your goals and wishes would have a bearing on the final arrangements.
