Custody of the Children and each parent's access to them will be determined by the Court if the parties are unable to agree. The Law Office of Barbara A. Castrataro provides thoughtful guidance and we encourage great effort be devoted to resolving such issues between the parties for several reasons, the first and foremost is for the benefit of the children and to remove them directly from further disruption of their lives and to refrain from drawing them into the Court process.
Our efforts devoted to mutually agreed resolution provides parents with greater control of:
-How their children will be raised
-Each party's responsibility
-How the parties will communicate
We establish a joint goal of supporting the children's growth, jointly celebrating their success, and precisely how to best support, participate and contribute to their lives.
It can also reflect to the children of a joint effort by each party to work together for their benefit and to act as an acknowledgment to the children that each parent understands how important the other parent is to the child.
