Children normally benefit when both parents maintain an active role in their life. As you work out a child custody and child support agreement with your spouse, it is important to set aside differences you may have with your spouse to reach an agreement that is in the best interest of your children; however, if you cannot agree on a child custody arrangement with your spouse, the court will determine a custody arrangement for you. This can not only be timely, but costly—both financially and emotionally for you and your children. Putting your children’s needs and emotions first in child custody decisions will not only help your children get through this difficult adjustment period, but life.
