Custody battles are no less stressful than adoptions. The need to establish custody in mediation or court typically is a result of divorce or possibly a death. Child custody lawyers argue for the best interests of the child on your behalf. However, the best legal advocates aren’t just resolving a dispute between the parents to support the rights of the child. They are also caring throughout the ordeal, aware that you are shouldering a huge emotional burden.
A family law court will typically order that custody be shared. Alternately, the judge will rule that one parental environment is harmful or detrimental to the child’s well-being, in which case they will mandate sole custody to the other parent.
A wide variety of factors related to child’s needs will be reviewed as the court determines the parameters for custody. Our child custody lawyers serving Auburndale, Bartow, Fort Meade, Frostproof, Haines City, Lakeland, Lake Wales, and Winter Haven can help you present a strong case so that the resolution is in the child’s best interests as well as your own.
At Fulmer & Fulmer, we understand how to craft an argument that meets the expectations expressed in the child custody laws while delivering your message and advocating your position.
Factors to be addressed by a child custody attorney include:
- The affection and strength of the parent-child bond
- The breadwinning or financial capacity of the parent
- The stability and safeness of the child’s current home, as well as the extent to which they are accustomed to their surroundings
- The risk that the other parent might be unwilling to participate civilly in shared custody
- The physical, psychological, and ethical soundness of each parent
- The behavior of the child in all aspects of their life
- The opinion of the child (although not always applicable)
- Any signs of physical or emotional abuse.
Our child custody lawyers have the compassion, drive, and experience to passionately and knowledgeably represent you.
Fundamental laws they will use to develop your case include the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (Title VI, Chapter 61) and Temporary Custody of Minor Children by Extended Family (Title XLIII, Chapter 751) provisions.
