Can custody be impacted by contested divorce?

Florida parents like you have something crucially important to keep in mind when handling your divorce: your child. We at the Law Office of Cheryl Bucker, P.A., are here to help you as you deal with matters like child custody, visitation schedules, and more.

How you handle child custody and visitation schedules will depend first on whether your divorce is contested or uncontested. Uncontested divorces are much rarer, as they require you and your spouse to agree on all basic matters of divorce, including custody arrangements. People with successful uncontested divorces often employ third party mediators to help them reach a final decision, allowing them to bypass the costly and time-consuming court battles.

If your divorce is contested, that means you must go through the entire legal process. The judge will also be the one to decide the terms of child custody, rather than you and your spouse. Based on evidence and testimony given throughout hearings, the judge will determine a visitation schedule and overall child custody rights based on what they believe is in the best interest of your child. Those parents who are unable to reach a consensus on their own will eventually end up going down this route.

Whether your divorce is contested or uncontested, you still need to determine matters of child custody. You can take a look at our web page on the topic, linked here. Having the aid of an attorney who specializes in matters of divorce and child custody can be a big help in figuring out your own situation.
