Choose Your Actions Wisely

In the state of North Carolina, a husband and wife must be legally separated for one year prior to the filing of a divorce complaint. During the period of separation, a husband and wife must act in the best interests of their children.

All too often, spouses have disagreements about custody and visitation and other matters that can affect the welfare of their children. Moreover, many people do not understand how much their actions can affect their parental rights if the matter ends up being decided by a judge.

Helping You Make Hard Decisions

Judges do not look favorably on a parent who unreasonably withholds access to the children from the other parent. All too often, people make critical errors that adversely affect their position in a custody dispute because they do not know what judges expect of them. To ensure that you do not fall prey to this, it is vital that you speak with a Charlotte divorce attorney at Krush & Sellers, P.A., and let us advise you on the correct course of action.

Judges & Child Custody

More and more often, judges are deciding that it is in the best interest of the children for parents to maintain joint legal custody rights even after separating and divorcing. For one parent to gain sole decision-making power in a case, there are usually extenuating circumstances that establish that one parent is not fit to make decisions in the children’s best interests, or that joint decisions are impossible given the personalities of the two parents involved.

There are a variety of factors that affect your child custody case, such as:

  • The age of your child/children
  • Number of siblings
  • The proximity of the two parent’s households
  • The work schedule of each parent
  • Each parent’s ability to provide for their child/children
