Going through a divorce is invariably an unpleasant affair, but when dependent children are involved, it can make the process considerably more complicated and emotional. The courts will generally award custody of marital children to one parent based on what they perceive to be in the best interests of the child, but in some cases, that parent is not always the best choice.
While you may have knowledge of situations that may lead to your child being in danger in the custody of the other parent, without adequate proof, the judge can only rely on your testimony, versus the testimony of the other parent. For this reason, you need to hire a professional to develop and document the proof you need.
At Maya and Maya, Inc., we understand that the most important issue surrounding the breakup of a relationship is the well-being of any existing children. If you have concerns that your child may be being poorly cared for, or even endangered, contact our office and speak with a child custody investigator for answers to all your questions.
