Winning - or Losing - the Custody Battle


In this blog posting, Joshua Katz, a divorce lawyer in New York, writes that "winning a custody battle is all about your lawyer’s presentation to the judge." Mr. Katz goes on to say that, as a litigator in child custody cases, his job is to "present my client to the judge in a positive way." The question I ask is "why do parents, both of whom care deeply about their children and, hopefully, wish to foster a positive relationship between the child and the non-custodial parent, leave custody decisions to the courts?" Divorce mediation allows you to stay in control. You have greater control over your decisions as the you and your partner − not the mediator, judge or lawyers − determine the outcome. Decisions stay where they belong: in your hands. After all, you know best the needs of your children and your plans for the future. If you or someone you know could benefit from assistance in decision making during a divorce, contact Falmouth Mediation at 508-566-4159 for a free, no-obligation, private, confidential consultation.
