Adoption, divorce and child custody

Divorce can bring many different questions and challenges, whether they involve finances (alimony, child support, etc.) or stress over going to court. However, divorce matters which involve children can be particularly tough, especially when it comes to child custody. Moreover, this may be especially true for some parents who have adopted their child. If you have an adopted child, you may be wondering how custody will be determined and what your options are. As with all custody cases, it is pivotal to know your rights and approach this issue carefully.

First off, every family is in a unique position. For example, you may have recently adopted your child, who is the biological child of your spouse, and you could be worried that this will have a negative impact on your pursuit of child custody. There are a wide variety of factors that the court will go over with regard to custody decisions and you should do everything that you can to prepare.

Aside from legal issues related to custody, some adopted children (especially those who have attachment issues) may be strongly affected from an emotional standpoint. As a result, it is pivotal to help your child through this potentially difficult time. For example, you may be able to provide them with reassurance and some peace of mind by comforting them and explaining the situation.

Child custody cases can seem overwhelming at times, but there is so much at stake and it is pivotal for parents to focus on their child’s best interests.
