Protecting the Well Being of Your Child

Your Child & Divorce

Guidance from Our Westchester County Divorce Lawyer

If you are considering divorce as an option to pursue better circumstances, then it is important to recognize the effects that divorce can have in your life, especially if you have children.

There are various studies that have been conducted to research:

  • Effects of divorce on children
  • The psychological damage
  • How to minimize damage to child
  • Emotional consequences of this change

What you also are likely concerned with from the personal standpoint is whether or not you will be able to retain custody of your child and how this will affect you in the future.

Coming to an Agreement

Deciding who will retain custody is a serious issue, and if you are unable to obtain the outcome that you desire, then you could suffer greatly from unwanted circumstances. If you and your spouse are unable to come to an agreement regarding custody and child support, then the judge will decide these issues on your behalf.

The decision that the judge makes will be for the child's best interests. This means that they will consider who can provide a better home life for the child and which parent will be responsible for child support payments. In some cases, joint-custody is granted; however, there are many cases where sole custody and visitation for the non-custodial parent is granted.
