Child custody considerations during divorce month

For many Pennsylvania families, the holidays are a time of being together and making memories. For others, it is a season that often emphasizes a couple's need or desire to move forward with the divorce process. This is one of the many reasons why divorce filings spike in January. If a couple is preparing to end their marriage, it may be helpful to go ahead and start considering important issues, such as child custody.

When a couple has minor children, the decision to divorce can be difficult. One of the main concerns of parents is how to protect their children from undue hardship and emotional distress. It can be helpful to take time to consider all options, laying the groundwork for a sustainable child custody order. Rushing into major decisions can have negative implications down the road.

Some parents decide to stay in a marriage for the sake of the kids, but that is not always beneficial. With a strong, thoughtful and sustainable custody order, it is possible to protect the well-being of the youngest members of the family. Custody is a complex divorce issue, but parents can reach a final resolution that will work for everyone for years to come.

For Pennsylvania readers contemplating divorce, January may be the right time to move forward with this choice. However, it is helpful to think carefully about all decisions that could impact a person's future or the long-term interests of his or her children. An assessment of the individual case can allow a person to understand all of the legal options available.
