Are You In Need of Child Custody Lawyers?
While divorce has many economic consequences for those involved, very often for couples going through the trauma of a separation, the rights and needs of their children always come first. This is why the services of a child custody lawyer is essential, as they, much like the law, always keep the interests of the child paramount.
When dealing with something as sensitive as splitting up a family, a child custody lawyer can help create a harmonic family situation where children are exposed to as little trauma as possible, while securing the most amicable custody agreement for all parties involved.
Our child custody lawyers know that custody is more than facts and that determining what is best for the child is a nuanced situation that requires a keen insight into the family dynamic present.
Custody and The Courts
South African courts are always partial to ruling in favour of a form of joint custody where both parents share parental right, but the child mainly resides with one parent. This is the most stable arrangement for the child, as they don’t need to split their time between two homes. However, this could cause friction between parents who may not have split on the most amicable terms.
Therefore, the courts are not unfair and won’t grant joint custody where it is not in the best interest of the child. If you need someone to secure sole custody, our child custody lawyers are the right choice to help you.
The topic of child custody can be a hard discussion, and when taken to the courts, it can become a messy and emotionally taxing situation for both the parent and the child. Our child custody lawyers take these factors into account when determining which approach to take. Why not contact us to find the right lawyer for your case, who can help you navigate the tricky legal waters of child custody and the courts.
