Divorce, separation, and custody issues are difficult for everyone who has gone through it. It is natural for you to experience feelings of anger, disappointment, confusion, and frustration. However, you cannot allow these emotions to prevent you from looking after your parental rights. Securing your right to be a father to your child will be the most important part of the divorce settlement. To get it right, you should seek the advice and counsel of an experienced and highly-skilled family lawyer.
Sarah Carmody is a Kansas family attorney who understands the complexities of dissolving a marriage and formulating an agreement that is fair to both parents.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to custody agreements. If you have agreed that it is best for your child to live with the other parent, you in no way surrender your parental rights. The other parent must still consult with you before making any serious decisions regarding the child, including health care treatment, schooling, or moving to another city.
In most cases, the other parent cannot move with your child to any location that makes it harder for you to see them. This is a common point of contention between parents. If you believe the other parent plans to leave the city or the state with your child or already has done so, then you should contact Sarah Carmody Law, LLC.
After divorce, both parties will go on to create new lives. That will involve meeting new people and potentially starting new families. It is possible to amend the original child custody agreement in a way that protects the best interest of the child. Sarah Carmody Law, LLC, can help you accomplish this goal.
