The Many Responsibilities You Have as the Custodial Parent

Being the custodial parent in the parenting relationship is one of the biggest responsibilities there is in the parenting world. Usually, you are deemed the ‘custodial parent’ when the courts agree to give you primary legal or physical custody of your child based on the circumstances of your case. Every situation is different when it comes to parenting with your ex-spouse but you will find that you will be taking on some of the largest responsibilities in your case when you are deemed custodial parent. We want to take a look at some of the different aspects that come into play when you have assumed this responsibility.

The Duties of the Custodial Parent

The Many Responsibilities You Have as the Custodial ParentFor one, as the custodial parent you will now be in charge of making a lot of the big decisions when you are determining the right visitation schedule for your child. You want to ensure that your child has a strong relationship with no parents, which means that you will either have to sit down with your ex-spouse and discuss these matters or take them to court. It might take some time to get the schedule right, but you want to get started immediately and try to stick with it as much as possible so your child has the right daily routine.

As the custodial parent, you always want to consider what is in the best interests of your child. This means that you want to make a variety of major decisions that will keep them happy and healthy, such as consulting the other parent when it comes to becoming a strong team and ensuring that you have a supportive and stable household at all times. If you ever decide to relocate, you want to ensure that your child has ample time to prepare for the move and that you give your ex-spouse notice so that you can discuss a new schedule that works for you.

As you can see, there are many matters to be considered when you are given this huge responsibility. Your child’s happiness depends on it, which is why it is important to speak with your attorney as soon as possible to get started on your case. We are waiting to hear from you, so contact us today.

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.
