Undergoing a child custody battle can be very stressful for both parents. Oftentimes, spouses are so involved in trying to get back at one another after the separation that they become fixated on winning full custody of their child without considering what the other parent or the child wants. However, it’s important to take a step back and consider what is in your child’s best interest.

Effects of a child custody battle

Despite any negative feelings you may feel toward your spouse, you should acknowledge the fact that your child needs both a father and a mother involved in his or her life. Children, especially at a young age, need a solid foundation in order to grow. Thus, the court will make child custody decisions based on what is in the child’s best interest.

Of course, things do not always go smoothly. The emotional trauma that is caused to children caught in the middle of a child custody battle is often very damaging to the child’s well-being. It is common for children to “act out” during divorce proceedings and child custody disputes. It is often best to consider other options in order to moderate the distress caused to your children in a child custody dispute.

Mediation May Be the Answer

As a parent, you have legal options that can often allow you to avoid a court battle over child custody.

With mediation, you can jointly select a neutral professional who will sit and listen to both parents’ concerns. The mediator will then make well thought out recommendations that are in the best interest of your child. Mediators often have decades of experience in resolving child custody disputes amicably.

When this happens, there is no need for costly legal bills and bitterness between the parents.

If you would like to avoid the cost and stress of a child custody battle in court, you should consider mediation.
