HOW CAN DIVORCE IMPACT CHILD CUSTODY?

As a Californian couple with children, you may be facing more hurdles than childless couples when it comes to dealing with a divorce. We at the Law Office of Stephen W. Penn and Associates are here to help as you traverse this difficult time.

Depending on whether your divorce is contested or uncontested, dealing with matters related to your child will differ. In the case of an uncontested divorce, this means that you and your spouse will work together or potentially with a third party mediator in order to come to a joint decision about matters like child support payments and child custody.

Unfortunately, this is a pretty rare scenario. In most cases, parents will be dealing with a contested divorce in which the spouses cannot make an agreement on child custody, visitation schedules, support payments, or other matters related to the child.

Having legal aid is considered a benefit regardless, simply because you have so many things to keep track of as a divorcing parent that childless couples do not have to worry about. You need to keep track of assets for payment plans, and even your moving plans could be affected.

Are you going through divorce? Do you feel at a loss for what to do, how to come to compromises, and what to prioritize within the divorce proceedings? Consider taking a look at our web page on divorce, linked here. We can provide you with more information on many different hurdles you may face and what can be done to overcome them.
