Bonneville, ID Family Law Attorney Guides You through Difficult Legal Issues

The most common reason people call on a family law attorney is because they have made the decision to end their marriage. This often triggers a variety of secondary issues, including the division of assets and debts, child custody, support, and spousal maintenance.

Child custody is often the most contentious aspect of a divorce. The court must consider the parents’ wishes and responsibilities, as well as a variety of other matters. These include

  • Child’s wishes, if he or she is old enough to express an opinion
  • Parents’ abilities and obligations
  • Relationship of each parent with the child
  • Age of the child and his or her developmental needs
  • Interaction between the child, parents, and other family members
  • Physical and mental health of both parents
  • Circumstances of everyone involved
  • Need to provide a stable environment for the child
  • Ability of each parent to provide emotional, physical, and financial support to the child

Mediation often provides a more peaceful path to resolution and allows families to create arrangements that are unique to their circumstances. The courtroom can be one of the worst places to resolve family law issues because it creates tension and conflict.

However, not all family law issues can be resolved in mediation and the court has no choice but to intervene.

Regardless how your situation is resolved, it can help to have supportive and experience family law attorney on your side.
