Protecting Clients And Their Children In Child Custody Matters
Safeguarding the well-being of children in the wake of divorce is hugely important. Ensuring that children are able to have the healthiest relationship with parents is critical. Custody exists to secure this right of children. In Iowa, a court will first look to what is in the best interest of the children. Generally, the best interest is determined by looking at characteristics of a parent in relation to emotional well-being, educational opportunities and ethical/moral behavior. The children’s characteristics are also considered. The Court explores shared physical care and primary care to each parent to determine the child(ren)’s best interest.
If you are involved with these issues, the importance of partnering with a skilled attorney who will advocate for you and your loved ones cannot be overemphasized.
