Breastfed Children: How Will Joint Custody Work For Us?

Are you a parent with a young child and you’re still breastfeeding your child? Now you’re going through a divorce and you aren’t sure how you’re going to work through the matter of overnight stays with your spouse. How will you be able to separate from your child for nights at a time so that your child can still eat? Today we will discuss these matters and how you can work together to come to a conclusion.

Working Through Breastfeeding Matters 

When it comes to custody, all states encourage the parents to reach a parenting agreement on where and when the child should be with the other parent. Courts tend to agree on what is in the best interests of the child. What is the best agreement for two parents who want to spend time with the child but the child is still being breastfed?

There are a few options. One of this would be the mother coming over and spending time with the child onto to breastfeed while the child is staying with their father. Another option would be expressing the breastmilk by pumping early so that the child could spend time with the child and have enough milk for them to feed throughout the stay. As you can see, there are many arrangements that would work.

When it comes to joint custody, many agreements try to come as close as possible to 50-50 custody. However, this is nearly impossible when the mother is breastfeeding and needs more time with the child by default. No matter what agreement is reached, the father and mother both have the right to return to court at any point so that they can have custody changed. This is especially true in cases when the child is no longer breastfed.

Let us help you in your time of need when it comes to your custody matters at The Law Office of Soheila Azizi & Associates. We will stand by your side to help you receive the best results in your case.

Beyond impressed! I had been self represented through years of family law and child support court hearings and was so hesitant to hire an attorney out of fear and trusting that they would appropriately represent myself and child. After tons of research I contacted Ms. Azizi. I immediately was greeted by Lorenzo, the Office Administrator, who made me feel so welcomed and comfortable. He assisted in making communication seamless and effortless and walked me through each step of the process. Ms. Azizi heard my concerns and was extremely sensitive to the matter of FAMILY. The team did an amazing job with discovery and building a strong case that gave me confidence and I was successful in coming to an agreement with the other party, in what has yet to have been the easiest hearing of all, thanks to them. Ms. Azizi settled my case after years of stress and agony. I am grateful for finding the team and Ms. Azizi and definitely recommend them for any of your legal needs!

This law firm is the best! They have helped me so much with my Divorce and Criminal cases and I really wouldn't know what to do if I didn't have them to represent me. Lorenzo and Ro are awesome and are there to help at all times. My attorney was Mr.Edmondson and he has been amazing. This law firm is truly great and I will never go to any other one. Their responses are quick and will answer any questions you might have.

Seven stars. I had planned to put up my reviews after my final judgment but after the first hearing, couldn't wait, and I would write this whatever the outcome of my difficult case. Soheila was simply amazing in her arguments and strategy before the judge. I felt so taken care of. I chose her for her near-30 years of experience as an attorney, the depth and strength I observed in one who had weathered hardship through her many accomplishments, her compassion, and her smarts. I can't imagine what other attorney would have Zoomed with me even in sickness to help prepare me for a legal session. And I later saw how keen she'd been in her advice. I've been deeply touched watching Soheila and her paralegal Lynda Walker fight for my child as if he were their own. They in particular have treated me with great humanity - day and night from what I experienced at my former attorney's. Lynda is a gem, on her toes, flexible, hard-working, committed to each client, humble, and sweet. She has slaved over my case, doing much of the writing, watchful of me on paper and in person, guiding me gently while encouraging me to use my voice. The staff, including the office administrator Lorenzo and Linda C, is caring, respectful, and conscientious. A band of angels.
