3 Things to Remember During Your Custody Battle

A failed marriage that ends in divorce is never easy to deal with. Between the heartache, lawyers and fighting, a divorce can be one of the most stressful times of your life, even more so if there’s a custody battle. 

Luckily, we here at The Law Office of Zapicchi & Liller, LLP have been able to help mothers and fathers through divorce court or a custody battle. Although we are a top choice for DUI defense in Burlington County, NJ, our team of lawyers can help make the divorce process much easier for both parties. 

Some of the tips we give all of our clients during the custody battle process include:

Do Your Best to Avoid Court

If it is still early enough in the separation, we recommend avoiding going to court over the kids altogether. As much as the two of you may hate each other at the moment, it is always better to be able to make your own decisions than to leave it in the hands of a judge. We can help you arrange a mediation meeting between both parties to help avoid having it settled in the courts.

Always Consult With Legal Experts Before Making Any Moves

Arguments can always lead to irrational decisions, accusations and demands. Regardless of how heated things get, bite your tongue and don’t make any decisions without consulting legal counsel beforehand. A custody battle is a long and complicated process. Fortunately, our team of DUI lawyers in Burlington County, NJ is experienced in divorce laws and child custody battles. 

You’re Eventually Going to Fight, So Make Sure It’s Worth Fighting For

At some point, things are going to get ugly. Regardless if it’s about belongings neither of you ever used, the pets, or the TV in the living room, you’re eventually going to fight during the whole divorce process, and a custody battle is no different. However, it is important to remember to pick and choose when is the right time to put your foot down and fight over something. Picking when to fight is crucial during the divorce and custody process.
