Getting a divorce is a complicated process. When children are involved, it becomes even messier.

Oftentimes, both parents want what’s best for their children. However, as the divorce process goes on, there are always disagreements about what that means. Even if your ex-spouse isn’t contesting the divorce, you’ll likely need the help of an attorney to get the custody agreement you want. But how do you know when it’s time to contact a child custody attorney? Don’t gamble with your family’s future. If you’re in Beaufort and you experience any of the following situations, contact Fender Law Firm today and talk to a custody attorney.

You’re Worried About Your Children’s Safety

If you’re leaving an abusive relationship, your ex is trying to cut you off from your children, or your divorce involves court-ordered anger management, parenting classes, or substance abuse treatment, you should talk to a custody attorney.

You and Your Ex Live in Different States

When a custody dispute crosses jurisdictional lines, you should hire a custody attorney to help navigate the complicated legal issues involved.

The Circumstances of Your Divorce Have Changed Significantly

Perhaps one of you is getting re-married or moving away. One of the parties may be starting a new job. If the circumstances the child will be living under have changed, it’s important to speak with a custody attorney.

Your Ex-Spouse is Working with an Attorney

If your ex-spouse has hired a custody attorney, you better believe you’re going to need one too.
