Finding The Best Child Custody Arrangement For Your Family

In child custody cases, whether born of a divorce, a paternity or a modification case, a judge will decide which of the parents will have the children when and how often, with whom those children will primarily reside, and which of the two parents will have the final say as to their schooling, health care and religious upbringing. Questions about the best custodial arrangement for you and your children and whether you ought to fight for what you believe is the best arrangement encompass more than the mere consideration of your "rights" or the financial cost of such a bid. These, of course, are of great importance. Understanding what exactly you are fighting for and the effect of that fight on your children (and yourself) are key considerations.
