Courts Must Not Base Their Child Custody Decisions on Speculation About the Future

By Schwartz | White |

The decisions of the family courts are not just about the exchange of money to remedy prior harms or compensate one party for financial losses; by nature, court decisions about divorce and co-parenting govern how the parties will deal with each other, financially and otherwise, for at least the next several years after the… Read More »
