While you can get easily tempted to file a divorce after a bad situation that you’ve experienced with your spouse, you should think first and set aside your emotions. There are several factors that you need to consider before you file a divorce.That’s why a family law lawyer is important to guide you all throughout:



If you have children, then you would most likely discuss the custody of the child. While the child’s best interest is considered in custody, there are two types of it that you should always keep in mind. The physical custody refers to the physical possession of the parent to their children. On the other hand, the legal custody refers to the rights of the parent in making choices regarding the health and education of the children.

Visiting the child

If you are the non-custodial parent, then you should know that you have every right to visit your child especially if you have a valid reason. You are only restricted to see your child if there is a valid reason (such as child abuse etc.)  that prohibits you from seeing him/her.

Child support

You should also be actively supporting the financial needs of your child, regardless if you have the higher or lower income between the two of you. The money will go straight to the education, basic needs, medical insurance, and other necessities of the child that will require financial support from both parents.
