Child Custody Archives

Modern child custody is not one-size-fits-all

Keeping the best interests of the child at the forefront is the hope of many divorcing parents. Families and the courts no longer tend to default to automatically granting full child custody to the mother and offering visitation to the father. Now, more Iowa families are analyzing their unique situations to determine what options work best for the whole family, while trying to minimize disruption to the child's life. 

Different types of child custody

Battle lines have been drawn and the end is in sight for the Iowa couple. Divorce can be a difficult process, and when children are involved, the process can appear to be more difficult. However, by keeping in mind what is in the best interest of the children and each working with experienced legal counsel, parents can reach a child custody agreement and shield the children from as much divorce drama as possible.
