OGDEN & SALT LAKE CITY FAMILY LAW ATTORNEY
Grounds for Full Custody of a Child
When you undergo a divorce, dealing with child custody is one of the most stressful and frustrating things you will need to deal with. It is essential to worry about the outcomes of your child and their well-being. If you are hoping to obtain full custody of your children, it is best to enlist the help of an experienced attorney.
In order to obtain full custody, you will need to focus on the best interests of the children. The judge will need to review several things including:
- The age of the children
- The safety of the children
- The parental abilities to fulfill child-rearing duties
- Consistent routines
Judges are focused on what is best for the children. They want to have the children’s routines impacted as little as possible. If there is concern with the other parent, such as abuse or lack of parental involvement, you will need to prove this to the judge. Working with an attorney is the best way to ensure you are promoting the evidence correctly and it gives you the best chance to move forward with full custody.
Improving Your Chances of Full Custody
The main goal is to put the children first when you are going into a custody battle. The court does want to see the parents are trying to work together despite their differences to ensure their children are raised properly. Children are impressionable and parents need to avoid doing things that could affect the perception of the other parent. The courts want to see a good image of the parents, and the best thing you can do is focus on maintaining a professional disposition, put the children first, and be prepared.
