For most parents, their children are everything to them. They will do anything and everything to ensure that they are well cared for and his or her safety and wellbeing are protected. For some divorcing parents, this means collecting evidence to prove that they are more equipped to care for he child than the other parent. Child custody disputes are never easy to go through; however, they are sometimes necessary to ensure the needs and safety of the child.
It is never easy to reduce, limit or deny visitation of the other parent; however, when it comes to the best interests of the child, this might be a necessary step to take. A marriage could end for a wide variety of reasons, one of them being because of an abusive situation. At Katie L. Lewis, P.C.
