Divorce and the breakup of the family unit is a harrowing time for all those involved. Many couples not only have to end a once intimate and loving relationship with a spouse, but have to find alternative living arrangements and organize many other mundane matters. When the couple ends their marriage on harsh and hostile terms, they often engage in bitter feuding over property divisions and child custody. The mental agony, confusion and depression get overwhelming and distressing. At this time you need the help of counselors, friends and sympathetic relatives, who will help you ease through these tribulations in your life. If you are seeking to have fair access to your children you might consider hiring child custody lawyers to seek proper legal recourse for keeping the children with you or in order to remain part of your children’s lives to the best of your ability. Child custody lawyers will provide mediation on your behalf and represent you in a court of law should you choose to go to court.
