Divorce is an emotional time; however, you do have a lot of control over how it will go. Parties can agree on many of the issues and set their own terms. This can all be done with minimum court time and expense.
There is no “full custody,” there is Joint Legal and Sole Legal Custody relating to decision make for the minor children. The children have a right to have both parents, therefore the starting point should be Joint Legal Custody. However, if Parents cannot set aside their differences to work together on joint decisions for their children then one will have to be appointed Sole Legal Custodian.
Children born out of wedlock are presumed to be in the custody of the mother. Even if the man’s name is on the birth certificate or he has filed an Acknowledgment of Paternity he still does not have custody and visitation rights. The father must file a Paternity action in District Court to be adjudicated the father and establish custody and visitation rights.
Parties can agree on the schedule that works for them and their children. Courts today attempt to give each Parent equal time depending on their schedules and abilities.
Child support can be adjusted based upon a change of circumstance such as an increase or decrease in income, change in child care expense, or change in health insurance for the minor child.
