Keeping It Together
The most vicious and destructive divorces usually come down to a matter of child custody and support. Whether the parents have become so embittered with one another that they just want to punish one another, or their judgment of the other person’s capacity to act as a parent at all has been so twisted by their personal vindictiveness, divorce litigation can mean the ultimate destruction of one or both parents’ relationship with their children.
In many of these cases, the parent who is more willing to use whatever tactics necessary to win – no matter how underhanded or ugly – often does end up with the upper hand. These are the kinds of people willing to spend most of their money, time, and energy doing whatever it takes to tear down the other party and ensure they get as little contact with their children as possible, either as a form of punishment or because of their own delusional sense of self-righteousness.
This leaves the other parent in an awkward position – either you try to match the other party’s level of energetic hatred, or you try to keep your children’s lives and image of their parents unmarred by capitulating and settling for an unfair custody and supportive arrangement. Though many parents opt for this second route, in many ways it can leave both them and their kids in a much worse position than if they had done what they could to ride out the battle at court.
So, if you are opting to take the first option and do what you have to in order to maintain a relationship with your children and ensure you are not entrapped in a ruinous child support arrangement, you only have one real weapon at your disposal: finding the best child support lawyer available in your area and holding on for dear life. For us here in southern California, that means getting in contact with Shuff Law Firm.
