If you are choosing to separate or divorce, many decisions must be made that will not only affect you, but also your children. Child custody involves the legal rights of a parent to his or her child. The types of issues that involve child custody relate to the parents right to make decisions for the child, and custody or access to the child. In most instances, parents will fight for custody of their children by arguing they will be more fit to raise them. The court will generally award a percentage number for the time the children will spend with one parent versus the other, i.e. 80/20; 90/10 (for example 80% of the time with the mother, and 20% of the time with the father). Unfortunately, divorce proceedings can become nasty battles, which can end up hurting the spouses and the children involved.

An experienced family law attorney can help you negotiate and find a settlement that is beneficial to you and your children.
