Too many parents are not aware of the huge number of child custody issues that can arise until they experience them firsthand during divorce proceedings. That is why the attorneys at Andrew H.P. Norton place a great deal of emphasis on informing you, as a parent, about some of the factors that are known to come into play during the process of determining child custody arrangements.
Many of the difficulties that can arise during and after divorce proceedings often revolve around parents’ efforts to act in the best interest of their child/children. For instance, you may wish to move out of state with your child in order to pursue a job offer, which could ultimately provide your family with more financial stability. And while your interest in a new job may be rooted in better providing for your child’s needs, your child’s other parent could be opposed to you moving out of state. In such cases, child custody modifications may be necessary.
