Some Child Custody Considerations for Dads

Here are some things that you can do to help you get a successful outcome from your child custody process. Remember, the courts generally look to make a decision that is in the best interest of the child or children.

  • Mediation – Before you even step foot in court, you should think about engaging in mediation. This can help you and your partner come to an agreement without involving the courts. If this is possible, it should be considered.
  • Be prepared – Make sure you come in with a plan and with the proper documentation already prepared such as child support and visitation schedule.
  • Articulate your concerns – If you’re seeking sole custody you should be ready to explain why sharing joint custody with your partner is not in the best interest of the child or children. Likewise, if you want joint custody, you should be able to describe why the mother having sole custody is not in the best interest of the child.
