Prioritizing Children In Child Custody Matters

Children are the most important consideration, whether going through a divorce, after a divorce or for unwed parents addressing child custody.

When a child's parents separate, his or her life changes dramatically. Many of the changes are logistical — in most cases, children need to learn how to split time between their parents and get used to living and sleeping in new spaces.
