Child Custody Attorney
Child custody matters are never easy and the different situations certainly call for the skills and care of a professional. Child custody attorneys are equipped to handle sensitive situations and serve the child’s best interests and over all wellbeing. A child custody attorney will evaluate what situation serves the child best while also adhering to the rights of the parents. Unless harmful to the child, a child custody attorney will aim to settle on an outcome that will involve both parents in the child’s life. This is because, in accordance with the Children’s Act, the child has a right to have both parents in his or her life. This may mean shared custody or fair visitation rights and close contact with the child where one parent gains primary custody of the child. Only in the event of allegations and where it can be proven that one parent is a liability in the child’s life, will a custody attorney formulate an outcome in which a harmful parent is removed from the child’s life, either completely or partially.
