Survival List for Litigants

Undergoing a custodial dispute can be a harrowing and debilitating experience. Unless you are vigilant in protecting your parenting time from the onset of your separation from your spouse, you can lose vital parenting time and even the right to see your child, especially if you are a father. It is therefore crucial for you to know all of your rights before you embark on a custodial dispute.
