Keeping Your Child’s Best Interests At The Forefront Of A Case
Mrs. Carpenter is certified by the Ohio Supreme Court as custody guardian ad litem and a parenting coordinator. This means that she can advise the court when it comes to parenting time. Her goal is to represent the best interest of the child, which is also the thing a judge values most when making decisions. They will look at the relationship between each parent and child, the health of each parent and, if the child is old enough, will even take their opinion into account. A judge’s top priority is to make sure the child’s environment stays as stable as possible after a dissolution of marriage.
Despite the fact that a couple is splitting up, they both still have responsibilities when it comes to their child. Whether this means physically supporting them or financially supporting them, when a judge makes a decision, it must be followed. You are required to adhere to the agreement the court makes, provide a safe and stable environment and allow the child to continue engaging in school and activities post-divorce. While this may seem obvious, it can be easy to forget during an emotionally charged time. Mrs. Carpenter is a compassionate lawyer who is here to help you think logically and fight for what will make your child happiest.
