Child Custody Case | Child Custody Lawyer in Raleigh NC
Does your child’s mother have negative parenting skills? If so, talk with your attorney about this. Parents who neglect their children in any way should be reported to child protection agencies. A few neglect characteristics include:
- Drug Use
- Criminal History
- New Husband or Boyfriend With a Criminal Background.
- These situations might turn a child visitation case into a case that may award you custody.
If the child’s mother has a stable parenting history you may need to request visitation instead of custody. A back-up plan for this situation can be created with your child custody lawyer in Raleigh NC.
Many times, parents are able to exchange visitation during mutually agreed upon times. These orders should be followed at all times. Failure to follow the written requirements of the agreement might lead to forfeiture of visits. These visits are hard to obtain and take a great deal of time to iron out. It’s best to follow them to avoid scenarios where visitation could be jeopardized.
