When a marriage has irreparably and irreversibly broken down and a divorce case, whether it be friendly or unfriendly must follow, the children are really all that matters. If the judgment which dissolves the marriage is a lengthy procedure it may well be that the court needs to appoint a child support attorney to arrange child support payments prior to the divorce case being settled. The children are in the middle of any dispute and must be well cared for.
Why do we ask ourselves? Because the children have absolutely nothing to do with the ongoing disagreement of the parents and are pawns in the proceedings that will follow. They cannot influence the final outcome as they belong to both parents and need care.
Who will have the final say in the custody of the children is up to a judge who will certainly look into the care of the children as a main point in any divorce case. He is the one person who will award the custody to the parent who is prepared to look after the children and make them a priority in his or her life. A legal associate appointed from a firm of attorneys will delve into all the relevant aspects and the question of funds to be awarded at the same time taking into account of the interests of the child/children as a number one priority when litigating.
Anyone who disagrees with this is not fit to be assigned the full or partial custody of the children. In most cases if there is a dispute as to who will be totally responsible for the care of the children, and who will receive the child care support as well, it is a judge. How the visitation rights will be adjudicated together with other certain conditions which will all be put into place, will be sealed by the judge’s gavel. It is always a difficult decision for a litigator when there are children involved in a divorce case. However, the appointing of a well know firm of attorneys will have the correct and thorough litigators to sort out the wood from the trees. He or she will have to carefully look into the circumstances of each parent, from their general attitude to the financial affairs. In many cases a disagreement will arise when is comes to the financial welfare of the children as well as the visitation rights.
Circumstances may arise where joint custody of the children may be decided upon. However, certain parameters will still have to be negotiated, confirmed in writing and made an order of the court. Therefore, it is necessary to have a very competent person who will consider both sides of the case and make the best judgment to place before the court. There are legal professionals and child support attorneys who are competent to adjudicate in these matters. The legal professionals who have to perform these tasks, which seem quite easy at the time, are in fact most difficult as there are many facets which will have to be looked into and well documented to ensure the best child support is obtained.
