Custody is your ability after divorce to make important decisions for your minor children. The parent with custody makes medical decisions and decides where children go to school. Parents usually stipulate to joint custody. They agree to continue to make mutual decisions for their children. That makes sense because parents love and promote the best interests of their children. Parents, not a court, should decide what’s best for their family. The trend is for parents to agree to joint custody with equal and flexible parenting.
Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise wherever you can. As a peacemaker the lawyer has superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be “business” enough.
