Have you answered these important child custody questions?

Going through divorce can be a difficult time, especially if you have children. While you hope to settle on a child custody schedule that both parents are comfortable with, this is easier said than done. There may come a time when one parent or the other feels that they are getting the short end of the stick.

To avoid a situation that you are not happy with, there are a variety of child custody related questions to answer. These include:

-- What type of child custody arrangement is best for you and your children?

-- What is the typical attitude the court takes towards child custody?

-- How is child custody decided in your state?

-- What does a typical child custody statute look like?

-- What factors can you change to improve your chance of a positive outcome?

-- Is it true that the court always awards custody to the mother?

-- What happens if one parent has a history of alcohol or drug abuse?

All of these questions, among others, need to be answered. For example, you should have a clear understanding of what to expect from the legal process. This will allow you to position yourself for success.

It is never easy to go through a child custody battle. If you are faced with this situation, if you don't know what to expect next, take a step back and collect yourself. It is important to go into the process with a clear understanding of what is happening. This is the only way to ensure that you make the right decisions for you and your children.
