Family and matrimonial law can be a process that is filled with great emotion, frustration, and even distress when compared with other specific areas of practice. After all, many family law matters involve difficult topics such as divorce and separation, child support, and custody. At times, emotions can become so high that an agent of the state must step in to help ensure the best interests of a child are represented. In today’s blog, your North Haven and Greenwich, CT attorneys will discuss some important things to know regarding your custody suit and how our team can assist.
Anything But Easy
It goes without saying that a family matter is anything but easy or straightforward. Oftentimes, there may be great hostility between parents, and personal motives may drive specific actions or lead to withheld information. Instances such as these may require additional assistance from the court in terms of representing a child’s best interests, and a person may be appointed as guardian ad litem in order to do just that.
When it comes to custody suits, in particular, there are several factors to consider. For instance, a court will inquire into financial income, health status, living conditions and area, and more. It is difficult to say exactly how a case will settle when theorizing in a blog, so we encourage you to give our office a call and schedule your initial consultation to learn about your rights.
