Child Custody Guidelines And How To Win Custody


Published on

How do you win your case in a child custody battle? Divorced parents may give different answers to this question. Some parents might say that if you become the custodial parent then you have won. Others say that if you get your way in court then you have won. Winning child custody means something different to every parent since every parent has different predictions and ideas about this custody agreement.
