What To Expect From Your Custody Suit

What To Expect From Your Custody Suit

Family and matrimonial law can be a process that is filled with great emotion, frustration, and even distress when compared with other specific areas of practice. After all, many family law matters involve difficult topics such as divorce and separation, child support, and custody. At times, emotions can become so high that an agent of the state must step in to help ensure the best interests of a child are represented. In today’s blog, your Greenwich, CT attorneys will discuss some important things to know regarding your custody suit and how our team can assist.

Anything But Easy

It goes without saying that a family matter is anything but easy or straightforward. Oftentimes, there may be great hostility between parents, and personal motives may drive specific actions or lead to withheld information. Instances such as these may require additional assistance from the court in terms of representing a child’s best interests, and a person may be appointed as guardian ad litem in order to do just that.

When it comes to custody suits, in particular, there are several factors to consider. For instance, a court will inquire into financial income, health status, living conditions and area, and more. It is difficult to say exactly how a case will settle when theorizing in a blog, so we encourage you to give our office a call and schedule your initial consultation to learn about your rights.

Indeed, traversing the legal world can be complex and, at times, overwhelming. With this in mind, having a dedicated attorney or team of attorneys on your side is essential. Our practice has helped individuals and families like yours for years, and we are ready to help you obtain the justice you deserve. To learn more about this process and how our team can help, give us a call today.

Considering Various Sources of Information

For reasons previously mentioned above, the court may appoint someone as guardian ad litem to look through important documents, meet with individuals and groups active in the clients’ lives, and interview the child(ren) as well.

When making a determination on custody, the court will inquire into previous records regarding physical, emotional, or substance-related abuse among other factors. Schedule your consultation to learn more about this process today.
