Child custody matters greatly affect everyone involved. The most important thing that all parents must consider when there is a child custody issue looming is that the child's needs must be considered. It is easy for parents to fall into the realm of thinking that they have the best and most effective answer to the child custody matter. If that occurs, that parent might not be willing to consider other options. That frame of mind can often lead to a tumultuous child custody battle that causes the child stress.
Instead of trying to argue about every issue in a child custody case, some parents agree to work together to come up with a plan that helps the child to have the best life possible. When this occurs, the child's needs can be considered, as well as each parent's preferences. We can help you to discover ways that you can try to come to an agreement about all child custody matters.
When parents can't come to an agreement on the child custody matters, the court must step in. This means that a stranger who doesn't really know your child will make a decision about the custody issues based on Tennessee laws. In this case, you will be the person who has to show why your way is the best option for the child.
Throughout a child custody case, there can be variables that change the course of the case. It is crucial that you prepare for those "what ifs" so that you are ready when they pop up. We can help you to prepare your side of the case and learn what you need to so you can help the case move forward.
