Protecting one's rights during a child custody dispute

No marriage is ironclad. Even when spouses in Virginia and elsewhere take steps to better the marriage and resolve any marital disputes, this does not protect them from the possibility of divorce. Even when children are involved, their presence does not mean the marriage will last or parents will remain together because they have children together. With the divorce rate remaining around 50 percent, the reality is that parents might be faced with marital problems and difficult decisions.

One of the hardest divorce issues to address during dissolution is child custody. It is never easy to consider a future that does not allow a parent to see their children as often as one has since the day they were born, the reality is that many divorcing parents reach a custody arrangement that is close to 50-50.

With co-parenting being the common trend among divorcing parents, it is important for spouses to consider how shared parenting could work for them. While no two marriages are the same, and spouses and children have their own individualized needs, it is important to understand how to reach a child custody arrangement that meets the best interests of the child.
