Your children are accustomed to having both parents in the same home. When you and the other parent call it quits, your children have to get used to having parents who live in separate homes. This isn't always easy, but you and your ex can make things work if you are willing to put your child first.
One thing that you have to think about when you are in the middle of a child custody issue is how the tension is impacting your child. In almost all cases, getting the matter resolved quickly is best for the child. This is where mediation comes into the picture.
We can help you to find ways to work with your ex so that you can settle child custody matters as quickly as possible. Going through mediation and working together is almost always faster than waiting for a trial to occur.
