Welcome and thanks for visiting Custody Arrangements. I know there is a lot of questions out there about child custody and family court so I hope this site helps you out. If you have any questions that you might need answers to write them in my blog and I will try to get back to you on them. Remember this I am just a person that has been going threw family court or child custody arrangements for 10 years now. I have no ties to courts or lawyers. So please don't think of my site as legal advice. It is only advice form a regular person!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is the one I wished I knew back then because it could have saved me a lot of time threw out the years. Family court basically comes down to what lawyer you got and what judge you got. You can control one of these. Most people can't afford to hire a lawyer so they have to get a public defender. Which isn't a bad thing these public defenders all the do every day is being in the court rooms so they have the knowledge. But here is the thing what you have to watch out for. There are public defenders that really don't care about your case. They just want to get it done as quick as possible and move on to the next case. Then there are some really awesome ones out there that really care about what is going on and what is best for the kids. So don't walk into family court blind do some research online or ask people who have been threw this before what is the best public defender in your county. Find 2 of them and write them down. When you go to court the first time the judge is going to ask you if you have a lawyer. In which you say no. Then he will ask if you want one and you say yes. He will give you the paper work to fill out for a public defender. You can ask the judge if you can get a certain public defender and 98 % of times they will give that one
