Considerations for Joint Custody

There are many factors that influence a judge’s decision to grant custody. In most scenarios, joint custody can be achieved if both parents prove that they are capable of parenting. Some of the factors that a judge will consider include:

  • Needs of the child
  • Stability of the home
  • Employment of the parents
  • Educational opportunities
  • Parents’ willingness to share custody
  • Geographic proximity of parents’ houses

These are details that a judge will consider when determining the custody arrangement for a child. Sometimes in joint custody cases, the judge will determine that one home is the primary household and the other is part time. If necessary, a Raleigh joint custody lawyer may represent you if you wish to fight for primary custody care.

- Phenomenal Cost-Effective Attorney

The divorce process is tough. Not only is it emotionally difficult and physically draining, but the actual legal process itself is simply unchartered territory for most of us. When my spouse served me with a separation papers & an out of this world financial proposal — I nearly had a heart attack. I was just plain shocked and totally unprepared for the ridiculous and unjustified financial demands that she wanted. I was an emotional wreck, but in a panic, I called my CPA advisor and asked for help. I’ve known my CPA for over 5 years having found him thru the Dave Ramsey website. When I asked him to recommend a divorce attorney, he gave me one name, Jeff Marshal. I’m not going to attempt to list all the reasons you should call Jeff, but I can attest that you will not be sorry you called. The divorce process has significant and lasting implications on everything important in your life after divorce. Make sure you that you have Jeff by your side when these decisions are being made, I am certain that you will be glad you did.
