Child custody and property division must be thought out carefully

Divorce and child custody are two family law matters that often go hand-in-hand. When you know your marriage is over, you need to think about what you are going to do now. If you have children, your top priority has to be making sure they are being cared for in the best way possible.

For many parents, the child custody arrangements are difficult to establish. You are accustomed to being around your child all the time, so having to think about the parenting time schedule might be disheartening. This is especially true when you start working out a holiday plan for when the children will see each parent.

We realize that you may have an idea of how you want things to be set for all aspects of the divorce. Many divorce cases involve mediation, which is a chance for you and your ex to work together to come up with the terms of every aspect of the split. You must go into these meetings with the intention of negotiating. There is a good chance that you aren't going to get everything that you want.

The property division process is another one that is often complicated. Trying to split up assets and liabilities can be a battle. Instead of focusing on getting the biggest assets, evaluate your financial situation and determine which assets you can comfortably afford. Most assets, such as real estate, have considerable upkeep costs that you need to factor into your single-person budget. This might provide you with a clearer picture of what assets you might need to fight for.
