Taking Care of Children during Divorce
When you and your family are involved in a difficult divorce, there are many things that may be running through your mind about what is going to happen to your children. One of the first things that the court will address is where the children will be placed in the process of the divorce. The court will assign a hearing where the judge will speak with both parents and sometimes even the children to determine who will take care of the kids both during and after the divorce proceedings.
During your hearing, the court will evaluate the mental capacity of both parents to determine which parent is more capable of caring for and raising the children. Sometimes the court might require that you go and see a counselor to evaluate your stress level as well as how well you are handling the situation with the break up of your marriage. All courts understand this factor and try to make things very fair between the parents.
During the hearing, the court will assign one person to be the custodial parent and one to be the non-custodial parent. This means that the custodial parent will have, for the most part, full custody of the children until the custody issue is settled permanently in court. The non-custodial parent will have partial custody of the children during the course of the divorce. This means that the non-custodial parent will have some type of supervised visits during a set amount of time every week.
