Custody issues regarding a child with special needs

When married couples decide that the time to bring their marriage to an end has come, all sorts of difficulties may arise, and this is particularly true for those who have kids together. Parents may have to work through various family law matters, such as child support, but determining child custody can be especially emotional and difficult for the entire family. Moreover, there are times when the process of establishing custody can be more complex, such as when a child has special needs.

Sometimes, special needs children have costly medical needs and a parent may have to very careful with respect to a child’s diet. One parent may have more familiarity with handling these responsibilities and this could be taken into consideration by the court when decisions regarding custody are made. Ultimately, courts aim to secure an end result that serves a child’s best interests, so it is important for parents to take this into account as they approach their divorce.

Outside of custody, there are other unique considerations that may arise with regard to special needs children, such as the amount of child support a parent needs or is required to pay. Our law office knows how difficult these family law topics can be, especially for someone who is raising a child with special needs, but it is pivotal to know your options and carefully move forward. Furthermore, your child’s best interests should remain a top priority throughout your divorce. On the fathers’ rights section of our law firm’s site, more related to custody arrangements is available.
