Custody disputes and infant children

Divorce can be complicated for many different reasons, but some couples face particularly difficult challenges as they work through the process and adjust to significant life changes afterward. For example, the parents of an infant may have a very hard time during their divorce, especially if there is disagreement over how custody should be divided. Unfortunately, custody disputes involving infants can be especially challenging and it is vital for parents to keep their child’s best interests in mind as they work through the dispute.

Every couple is in a unique situation. Some may have been planning their divorce for months regardless of the birth, while others may find that the recent birth of a child played a role in the breakdown of their marriage. Sometimes, couples can agree on which outcome would be best for a child, but some cannot reach an agreement and inevitably take their dispute to the courtroom. Infants are very different from older children in terms of their needs and parents may want to see their baby more often to bond with the child. Moreover, infants do not have to attend school, which also affects the custody arrangement.

When it comes to custody issues, the laws vary from state to state. In some states, a child’s age may be especially likely to impact how custody is awarded, and there are many other aspects of a custody case that may require consideration (such as a child with special needs). It is vital for parents to stay committed to their infant’s best interests during such a crucial time.
