How Your Actions Now Can Affect Later Custody Proceedings

In the state of North Carolina, a couple must be legally separated for one year prior to the filing of a divorce complaint. During the period of separation, both parents must act in the best interests of their child or children.

All too often, spouses have disagreements about determining custody, 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 in a family court.

Judges do not look favorably on a parent who unreasonably withholds access to the children from the other parent. To ensure that you do not fall prey to this, it is vital that you speak with an attorney at Krusch Divorce Resolution, and let us advise you on the correct course of action during your period of separation.

Judges and Types of Custody

More and more often, judges in Charlotte family courts are deciding that it is in the best interest of the children for parents to maintain joint custody rights even after separating and divorcing. For one parent to gain sole decision-making power in a legal custody 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
  • Evidence of domestic violence in the home
  • Each parent’s ability to provide for their child/children

    “I have used Alan several times over the past 15 to 20 years. He is a caring and wise individual. I have always been very pleased with the service that Alan provided. If you need to get "lawyered up" for a domestic case, I highly recommend Alan.”

  • Alan is a sophisticated professional.

    “Alan is a sophisticated professional. Wow, did I say wow?!!!! He will tell you up front EXACTLY what will happen with your case. Also known as the truth, which (by the way you probably already know.) My advice is to just let him do his job -that he is more than capable of doing. Don't ask too many questions or get yourself worked up. Alan will tell you in advance almost the exact outcome of your case to a t. In the end you can feel good about him as a human being because he won't resort to less than favorable behaviour. And by that I mean other attorneys who have to use immature tactics to make up for what they lack as men. Although it is quite entertaining to watch some of them!!!Hahahahaha!!!!! Submitted by JULIE MEDLIN, who JUST WON HER CASE!!!!!!!!! Thank you ALAN KRUSCH!”
