When a parents reach a point where they can no longer remain together, divorce, or breaking up, is usually the next logical step. If there are children to consider, custody arrangements are an essential part of the process. The best interests of the children, financial support and shared parenting are just some of the factors that parents need to work out.

Despite how divorces, or break ups, involving children are represented in popular media, it is possible to resolve disputes and come to agreements. During this difficult time, you deserve to receive support. And, ensuring that your children are cared for and nurtured is integral.

Custody Arrangements
