How to Fight Fair in a Custody Case | Kelly Peterson LawAs a divorced parent, being separated from your children can be a heartbreaking experience. When it comes to divorce, child custody disputes are often times a challenging and tricky aspect that both parents have to deal with.

Below are some useful tips on how to properly represent yourself, and fight fair in your child custody case.

Hire a Good Attorney

If you really love your children, then now is the time to forget about expenses and hire a good attorney. You should find one who has specialty in this type of case regarding child custody, as well as a history of high success, a healthy public reputation. With a skilled lawyer by your side, you will be well equipped to handle the various different allegations that may be thrown your way, and increase your chances of winning the case.

Show Yourself as a Balanced, Reasonable Individual

You should be extremely careful while in a court of law, and avoid being seen as an individual who is hot tempered, or angry. Even if you are highlighting any bad points of the other parent, you should also bring up some of their better qualities, as well. This can be a tricky task, as you need to carefully balance and plan the correct strategy, so that your opinions will not come off as biased, or tendentious. You should discuss this in detail with your attorney, and think of how you can present yourself and your case to the Judge as a reasonable individual.
