Custody – Birmingham

One of the most emotionally-charged aspects of a divorce is child custody. As the responsibilities of both parents have grown and evolved, traditional child custody arrangements are no longer the norm. In the past, the mother was nearly always awarded custody by default. Now, however, courts consider a number of factors when deciding who should receive custody of the children.

Some factors include:

  • The preferences of the children
  • Any history of abuse
  • The proximity of each parent’s home to the other home
  • The ability of the parents to work well together
  • The emotional, physical, and financial stability of each parent

Many times, parents can work together amicably to decide upon a custody agreement that is beneficial for all parties involved. Joint custody (either physical custody, legal custody, or both) is best for many families. It encourages both parents to stay involved and active in the lives of their children.baby-164897_640

When parents cannot decide upon the best custody arrangement, they can meet with a mediator or allow the court to decide. Many couples prefer to use a mediator as it allows them to have come control in the decision-making process. As Birmingham family law attorneys, we understand that your most valuable asset is your relationship with your children. We can help you prove your stability and the benefits of your home so the court considers custody favorably. Contact us today online or by phone at 205-623-1001.
