Mistakes to Avoid During a Child Custody Battle

Did you realize that over 87% of the child custody agreements in place in the United States were created by Title IV-D agencies? These agencies work directly with the courts to draft these agreements. If you are currently going through a child custody battle, you know all too well how stressful this process can be.

Knowing when to be flexible and when to avoid compromise is essential when trying to get the right child custody agreement in place. Instead of trying to handle a child custody battle on your own, you need to find a legal professional to help you out. With the help of a lawyer, you can avoid making mistakes that could put your child custody agreement in jeopardy. Here are some of the mistakes you need to avoid when going through a child custody battle:

Steer Clear of Social Media

The higher the severity of your injuries is, the more impact they will have on your ability to conduct the normal business of your life. An attorney can help you consult with physicians to determine a plan of care that will allow you to form a path forward. Financial compensation can be based around this plan, and your attorney can help you obtain an accurate amount of money in damages.

Failing to Compromise

There are situations in which the extent of injuries is not immediately known, such as back and neck injuries that are a result of a low impact car accident that doesn’t develop until some time afterward. You may initially feel that there is no need for a physician’s care, yet you experience health complications at a later date. Attorneys will assist you in gathering the information needed to claim damages from the injuries that resulted from the accident.

Avoid Putting Your Children in the Middle of This Battle

If your accident leaves liability in question, and you find yourself being held responsible, having an attorney on your side is essential. The other party may falsely claim the injury was solely your fault, no one’s fault, or that it never occurred in the first place. Attorneys can help you establish the facts and represent your interests so that you are fairly compensated.
