You should not allow your emotions to cloud your judgment, but this can be easier said than done. Attorney Cole can minimize the tension and keep you levelheaded.

Understanding Parental Rights In Michigan

Custody determinations boil down to what is in the best interests of your child. The court looks at specific criteria to make the call. Knowing the criteria can give you an idea of what you should be working toward to obtain custody.

To determine what is in the best interests of your child, the court will evaluate factors that include:

  • Parent’s income
  • The child’s preference
  • Housing situations
  • The ability of a parent to provide medical care, safety and support
  • The health of both parents and the children
  • History of domestic violence
  • The parent-child relationship

These are just a few of the factors courts take into consideration. Contact us today to schedule a free consult and learn about the possible outcomes.

You May Have To Compromise To Successfully Co-Parent

Compromise is an important component of co-parenting. No matter how good of an attorney you have by your side, you may not walk away with everything you want. As a parent, you must be able to set aside your wants and prioritize what is in the best interests of your child. That means that you must be willing, in some cases, to meet the other parent halfway. Our attorney will help you to separate your emotions from the facts and come up with a compromise that works. Rest assured we will fight for your parental rights and parenting time and will do what it takes to protect your child.
