I once represented a father in Oakland County family court in a divorce that involved a serious dispute about custody of the parties’ young child. You often find in a divorce that both parties believe that they would be the best custodial parent for the child, so the court is left to determine what the best interest of the child is. There are numerous factors the court looks at to determine the “best interests” of a child, so in this situation the best strategy is to employ an attorney to present evidence that weighs most favorably to you. In our case, we gathered extensive evidence to prove our client was a capable father who should be awarded reasonable parenting time, and after numerous battles in court, the judge agreed. Custody and parenting time battles can get ugly, and it is vital to have an experience attorney fight for your rights as a parent.
