Keeping Your Custody Agreement Amicable

As a parent going through a divorce, you are likely going to have a lot of questions for your lawyer about how your time as a parent is going to change. At Richard F. Gibbons Jr., PLC, one of our key goals is to ensure that you have the time to see your children.

When filing for divorce, it is always advisable to pursue an amicable, fair solution for both parties. Custody is a sensitive issue that can bring out some difficult feelings. The best possible resolutions happen when you avoid turning custody of your child into a battleground.

The Most Important Strategy For Yourself

You cannot control the other side of your divorce. Going into the proceeding with the best intentions may not mean much if your ex has chosen an aggressive course of action. In that case, you can rely on our expertise to protect your priorities. The best way to help yourself when you are facing a difficult custody dispute is to put your child first.

There is no advantage to looking at your case in terms of your rights as a father or as a mother. By putting your child's interests ahead of your own, you can be sure that you have done the right thing.

The Right Thing For Your Child Is The Right Thing For You

The selfless choice is harder, but putting your interests aside for the benefit of your child is what a parent is supposed to do. When you demonstrate that you can take a back seat to your child's needs, you demonstrate that you are the right kind of parent for your child. In a Virginia court, that might make a huge difference.
