Why I Don’t Know Your Custody Order Like You Do

| Mar 29, 2013 | Firm News |

It’s 4:00 on a Friday and you call my office upset because your ex-husband picked the kids up on the second Tuesday after the Third Wednesday from your Cousin’s house instead of the Wawa.  I am silent and you can’t figure out why.  Mostly it’s because I don’t memorize your custody order.  Does that shock you?  Well it shouldn’t.

Most people come to an attorney hoping that they can get a great solution for their family.  What they don’t want, is a cookie cutter solution.  I often tell clients that there is no such thing as a standard custody order.  Some people are horrified by that notion, but after they reflect, they realize that it is a good thing.  It is important that your custody attorney craft a solution that works for your family.  That means that every case I handle is different.  You are unique and so is your family.  Don’t be afraid to ask for a unique custody solution that best fits your family.  However, try to keep it simple enough that the kids can understand.  They really shouldn’t need a personal assistant to figure out when they will see their parents.
