Wilmington Child Custody Attorneys

In matters of child custody, the court follows standard contact guidelines governing parenting time and visitation. Unless there is evidence that the child will be in danger with one parent, the court will not grant the other parent full custody. Joint custody is the rule these days, and courts are moving closer to the ideal of shared residential arrangements after the age of 18 months.

Knowledgeable Delaware Parenting Time Lawyers

Child support and child custody are interrelated. Parents with approximately equal incomes can probably both get by without representation. A parent who is paying support has greater use for a skilled attorney than the parent who is receiving support payments. Parents who are self-employed or who have some other unique situation are advised to hire a lawyer. Why? Because you only need a lawyer when you need to do something; you cannot do cross or direct examinations on your own.
