What is best for your child?
First off, what is best for your child? What’s best for your child? That’s a very loaded question, but it’s a question you must answer for yourself.
Here are a couple of things to keep in mind:
* Your child is not a chess piece. You are not playing against your ex to win custody.
* It is okay to ask for more time with your children if you truly think it’s best for them.
It is also important to remember that your children are your responsibility, not just your ex’s. Even if your ex is willing to work things out with you, that doesn’t mean you should relinquish your parental rights. Your children are your future. You must protect them from harm and provide for their needs. If you’re having a hard time answering that question,
Here are some guidelines to help you make the best decision for your children:
- What’s best for your child is the thing you want.
- If you can’t decide, the court will decide.
- Ask your parents or a trusted friend if you’re unsure.
- If you’re still not sure, talk to a professional.
- If you’re still not sure, don’t do anything.
What happens if you don’t decide?
No matter how much you want to make the decision, there are circumstances where you might be unable to. In such cases, your best option is not to decide. Your ex will select based on their best interest when you don’t choose.
This means you will lose the opportunity to have a say in raising your child. You might think your child’s best interest is to stay with you, but that doesn’t always hold. If your ex is better equipped to raise the child, staying with them could be your child’s best interest.
It’s best to assume that you can’t win in this scenario. In the best-case system, you will lose. In the worst case, you may lose custody. So, what do you do when you’re in a situation where you don’t have a choice? The most important thing is to get a lawyer. You’ll need someone who has experience in dealing with custody issues.
Who gets custody of the child?
You may not be aware of what is going on behind the scenes. If you are considering filing for a divorce, the first step is to decide who gets custody. This can seem unfair, but divorce is a negotiation between both parties. In most cases, one parent is willing to give up the rights to their child to gain more time with their kids.
However, once a decision has been made, the parent left with the child must work out a custody agreement with the other parent. There are many factors to be considered when deciding on a custody agreement. These include child safety, the parent’s mental health, and how well-loved and supported the child is.
