Processes for Child Custody & Visitation

By KRP Law  Nov. 18, 2010 4:45p

One of the most complicated processes in a divorce involves any children between the spouses. Child custody and visitation rights have to be decided in both uncontested and contested divorces, which can be a traumatic experience for a child if the process ends badly or on an unfriendly note. It is of the utmost importance for court proceedings that the child or children involved in a divorce receive the biggest benefit of whichever direction the child custody decision is made.

An environment in which a child could not life safely, healthily and happily is an environment that the courts will not place a child in. Many parents however, are both loving and capable parents towards their children, which makes the process of deciding custody much more difficult. In the event of a divorce, it is always important to receive legal guidance from an experienced Salem, MA child custody lawyer.

There are many factors that can affect the court's decision including the family situation both presently and in the past, the effects of each proposed arrangement, the history of the parents and any existing domestic violence or drug or alcohol abuse and the involvement of each parent in raising the child. Finally, if the child is old enough their wishes are taken into account in the decision process and can highly affect the outcome.
