What Are My Child Custody Rights During the Divorce Process?

Wednesday, July 14, 2021

While child custody is part of a divorce, it is often saved as the last part of the process. It is the most complicated and will require the most time to officially sort out. That said, divorces, even simple ones, can often take months just for a court date. In the meantime, you probably still want to see your children. What are your child custody rights during this questionable period?

Child Custody

As you would expect, most couples usually work something out when it comes to child custody during a divorce themselves. By having nothing legally binding, it can be a nice trial run to work out what you exactly want out of your future child custody agreement. It can be a good time to work out the quirks as well.

Unfortunately, it is not unusual for couples to be difficult and petty with each other during the divorce process. When this happens, it can make child custody rights particularly difficult. If this is the case, you will want to bring the issue up with your lawyer. What they can do is take the issue to court where the judge will give a cursory glance over your case. They will then establish a temporary child custody order that dictates set times you will get to see your children. This is not permanent but can ensure you get your fair due of time with your children when your ex-spouse is being difficult.
