November 19, 2018

Rebecca Zung, Esq. and Susan Guthrie, Esq. discuss the hot button topics of sole custody and unfit parenting on Breaking Free: A Modern Divorce Podcast.


These words strike fear in the hearts of parents during divorce and separation and are thrown out like weapons in the battle that divorce can often be but can one parent really take the kids away from the other one?  

This week Susan and Rebecca unpack the complexities of the law around parenting and the realities that you face in court when seeking to limit parenting time or restrict your co-parent's time with the children.  They discuss what constitutes an "unfit parent" and what you really need to show the court in order to get sole custody of your kids.  

Custody battles are long, drawn-out and expensive.  Find out what experts you will need in order to litigate these issues in court and what other professionals are commonly involved.  Most importantly, find out the inside story on what the court will consider when deciding if sole custody is in the best interests of the children and what types of orders judges generally enter in these cases.

Before you tell your co-parent "You'll never see your kids again" or if you have heard this threat, be sure to listen to this episode - it has all the information you need to know!
