A "shared parenting agreement" is often the most appropriate equitable solution to a custody dispute, and undeniably the best available antidote for the emotional and developmental difficulties that arise with a contentious divorce atmosphere. Fortunately, with a degree of flexibility, careful planning, and a measure of self-control, you may not have to subject yourselves, as parents, or your children to the torments and tortures of an adversarial divorce litigation focused on custody matters.

Negotiation and compromise in the child's best interest is always the approach to emphasize first. A respectful, honorable, more humane decision-making is preferable to and less traumatic than litigation, when possible. As a social worker, attorney and mediator, Attorney Sweeney always puts the needs of the children first when helping either parent pursue a custody agreement.

Woman's rights in custody considerations

A WOMAN WHO WANTS TO retain primary custody of the children because she believes, for many diverse reasons, that is in the best interest of the children, may have situations when she must be very cautious. When dad is a work-at-home father or has great flexibility in his schedule, the situation must be looked at carefully. When dad has been the primary caregiver and mom the 'breadwinner' it is possible that mom's primary custodian position traditionally established may be in question. If this may be your circumstance, call Sweeney Law Offices for a consultation immediately at 724-390-4464 or 866-540-4180 Toll Free or email an experienced child custody attorney. Attorney Sweeney is always advocating for the best interest of your children and will work relentlessly to make sure you maintain your rights as a parent.
