Dealing With Child Custody Disputes

Dealing With Child Custody Disputes

One of the obstacles that divorced couples in North Carolina face is child custody issues. Even though it has already been decided during the divorce, many issues arise afterwards concerning decisions about the children. Former partners often disagree about issues that regard everyday matters for the children, and as a result, the children are left struggling while the parents ‘fight it out.”

The most logical thing, of course, would be to sit and talk to each other and come to a conclusion that is beneficial for the children. However, this does not happen often. After a divorce, emotions still run very high between the former couple and it is often difficult for one or both parties to communicate with each other over something as important as their children. This often leads to petitions being made to the court for a decision on the matter.

While some matters, such as parental relocation, agreement modifications, parental visits and changes to child support amounts may require the use of the court system, other issues really should be handled in a different manner. There are many options that can be used outside of a legal hearing that can allow both parties to settle a dispute surrounding child custody issues.

When two people need to modify the terms of their divorce, sort out child custody issues, or need to resolve any type of problems surrounding the end of their marriage, it could be in their best interest to speak with their respective family law attorneys. Counsel can often take the lead in negotiating an appropriate agreement.
