Doing What Is Best For You And Your Kids
As parents, we worry about our children. We worry about everything: their friends, their grades, how they dress, if they are eating correctly or if they are happy. When parents go through a divorce, one of the most important things they worry about is how their children are going to survive. We want to ensure that they have as much stability as possible and that the arrangements for their custody and upbringing will allow them to grow and flourish whatever the situation.
At the Law Office of Susan A. Moch, I understand what you are enduring. For more than 35 years, I have represented parents throughout Connecticut who are involved in custody disputes. With compassion, strength and experience, I will guide you toward a resolution that puts your children’s best interests first.
Resolving Difficult Disputes
Sadly, not all divorced parents place the interests of their children above their own. I know that children are not weapons to be used to get a better financial settlement or to taunt the other parent. The best outcome in any divorce is when parents can put their children first. However, reality tells us that not all parents are willing to do that.
Understand Your Custody Options
There are two types of custody arrangements. These are:
- Physical custody: This refers to where the children live and which parent resides with them most of the time.
- Legal custody: This type of custody refers to decisions about the child’s medical care, education and other issues.
Courts prefer to award joint legal and physical custody when possible. However, some circumstances, including the presence of abuse, lend themselves to sole or primary physical or legal custody.
