Topic: Child Custody
Unfortunately, many couples with children split up. When this happens, one parent will normally be given sole custody. While there are some circumstances where a couple may be able to work together well enough to share custody, the majority of cases involve one person being granted custody of a child.
Child custody is normally determined by a judge or through mediation between the parents. Custody battles can be drawn out and contentious, so if possible, people should avoid them. However, if a parent is sure that their child would be better off with them and they can’t come to an agreement with their ex, they will need to present their case in court.
