Why Marina R. Taylor is the Best Child Custody Lawyer in Brandon
Litigation is always the last resort for an experienced child custody lawyer. A out-of-court agreement focused on securing an amicable custody arrangement for your child is always a preferable course of action. A well-negotiated compromise can ensure that you don’t have to rely on the court to make a decision; it also protects your child from the scrutiny and stress that arises during a court hearing. Finally, a litigation process can be extremely expensive to go through, so even a drawn-out agreement process can be preferable.
Puts Your Child’s Best Interests First
When courts are forced to make a decision regarding the custody of your child, they do so, on the basis of a child’s best interest. The criteria for best interest includes amongst other things:
- The child’s desires
- The physical and mental condition of all parties involved
- Parent’s moral character and reliability
- Parenting ability
- Financial circumstances of each parent,
- The stability of your home environment and living circumstances,
- Any prior evidence of domestic abuse or substance abuse,
- The development of the child in terms of schooling and other relationships.
- Willingness to cooperate with the other parent.
- Who handled primary caretaking for the child?
As an experienced child custody lawyer Marina can fight for your rights in line with each of these aspects throughout the duration of your case, even as she ensures that your child secures the best outcomes possible.
