Custody Battle After Divorce Is Final

Custody Battle After Divorce Is Final

Custody battles are a very common and difficult problem after a divorce is final. In many cases, there is a lack of communication between the parents and this can create problems for the child.

This is from someone who knows: I have been through a custody battle before and it was not fun for anyone. The parents fight over who will have custody of the children, but sometimes that does not work out well for either parent or the child.

In my case, I had to go through months of court battles because neither of my parents wanted me. It was very stressful for me because I did not know what would happen to me. There were times when I felt like giving up. I did not want to go back and live with either parent, but I also did not really want to live with relatives either.

After a while, it got better when my mom won custody over my dad. This was because she was willing to compromise more than my dad was. Compromising just means that you are willing to give in on some things so that you will get what you want in other areas.”

Child Custody Battles

We all know that a child custody battle is painful. We’ve seen a client go through one for their son after the divorce was finalized. They did not want to fight over the custody of the son but the ex-spouse insisted on doing so. One of the parties was living with their parents at that time and was not earning much.

The best advice is to hire a good custody lawyer and fight your case in court. It is always worth it because custody of your child or children is everything. And the truth is, until your children are no longer minors, custody battles can appear in court.

From another custody battle survivor: My ex-wife and I got married at the age of 20 and had two kids. We were young, naive, and unprepared for marriage, so it didn’t take long before we realized that things weren’t going to work out between us. About four years after our wedding, we decided to file for a divorce.

The divorce proceedings lasted almost one year. During that time, my ex-wife lived with her parents and I lived in an apartment not far from where she was staying. The distance wasn’t big enough for us not to see each other every week, without fail. We both knew that this was the last time we would see each other, so we used those meetings as an opportunity for closure.

I truly believe that if we had talked about everything sooner and if she had shown interest in our marriage from the beginning instead of waiting until the end to try to work things out, our marriage wouldn’t have ended up in divorce court. But it’s too late to think about it now.

Things To Consider in Custody

Well, custody battle after divorce is final. You have to be very careful when dealing with a nasty ex. Never try to talk to him or her, as you will be giving him/her all the ammunition he/she needs.

The best way to deal with an ex is to get the best lawyer you can who will help you in this tough time of your life. No matter what happens, do not lose hope.

I hope this helps, and remember to rely on friends and family who can help you out.

If you are concerned about a custody battle after divorce is final, then you must understand the fact that the custody battle is no more. The custody battle starts when parents disagree on their child’s needs. If both of them are willing to compromise, then there won’t be any fight and they will settle out of court. Most of the time it becomes a war because one parent just wants to take full control of the child without thinking about what is best for the child. They don’t care if they win or lose in court, and they don’t care if they hurt their former spouse, as long as they get what they want.

The court decision is not final until it is finalized and even then, circumstances can change and child custody modifications can happen later. This means that parents can at least try to come up with an agreement instead of going through a lengthy process in court. Parents who can’t agree even after mediation should file for “joint legal custody” and “sole physical custody.” This would mean that each parent has authority over decisions regarding medical treatments and school, but only one parent has primary physical custody (that is, the children live with them).
