How Do I Get Custody of My Child?

Custody of a child is a very tricky subject because the laws have changed in many states. Judges no longer automatically give custody of a child to his or her unmarried mother. Nowadays, judges review several factors and determine the arrangement that would be in the child’s best interest. Both parents will want to have an attorney present to stand by their side in a custody dispute. The judge will review the following factors to determine where the child belongs: 

Financial Stability 

Financial stability will not be a main factor in making a custody decision, but it will be one of the areas that the judge will review. He or she will want to ensure that the child has all the essentials such as shelter, food, water and the like. 


The judge will review the lifestyles of both parents. He will look at whether the parents have a busy lifestyle that involves drug usage, dating, instability and so forth. The best life for a child is one that has as few changes and challenges as possible. The judge will consider the circumstances.

Criminal Background

A criminal background may affect the judge’s decision if the crime is recent. Drug crimes and sexual crimes against children will weigh heavily on a parent’s fitness in the eyes of the judge.

Relationship With Parents and Extended Family 

The courts will review the relationship that the child has with the parents and the extended family. He or she will speak to all members of the family and try to speak with the child, as well. The judge will be able to tell if the child has a close relationship with the mother, father and any of the extended family members. A custody decision may go a different direction if the judge finds that one of the parents tried to alienate the other one for personal gain. 

Getting Help With a Custody Case 

Having a lawyer involved in the case is imperative for mothers and fathers. Cordell and Cordell is a law firm that can take an objective look at the case and decide the best strategy for keeping the mother and father connected to the child. The first step in the process is making a brief phone call to schedule an initial consultation. The attorney will invite the person in and start fighting for his or her rights immediately.

A Hotel For Dogs

If you need to go out of town for a few days or a few weeks, you might wonder what you will do with your dog. A dog boarding Michigan facility can help with giving your four-legged friend a place to stay. These are locations that are similar to a hotel, but they are for dogs. Some breeds might not be allowed, and there could be limits on the weight of the dogs, but in most places, almost all dogs are accepted. There are numerous things to keep your pet busy while you are away.

One of the things to keep in mind is that you can usually keep an eye on your pet. Most boarding facilities have a camera system in place. All you have to do is log onto the website to see the dogs. This can give you a peace of mind in knowing that your pet is being care for in the proper way.
Boarding locations offer care 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Your dog can stay there overnight or during the day while you're at work. Before taking your dog to the facility, you will need to provide documentation of vaccinations. Most places will want dogs to have a rabies shot. Certain information will likely need to be verified about a day or two before you plan on taking your pet.

Something that you will probably find refreshing is that your dog can have items from home. These include food, toys, a blanket and treats. If you don't have these items, the facility can provide them, but it's an option if there is something specific your dog enjoys. Food is provided daily, and there is a constant supply of water. Outdoor play is encouraged, and the staff will work with the dogs to try to give them a little training before they go home.
