Protecting Your Children in Minot, North Dakota
When overseeing a divorce that includes a family with children, a family law judge will consider what is in the best interest of children.
The court will ask the following questions:
- Which home provides the most stability for the child?
- Which parent can best provide for the emotional and financial well-being of the child?
- Where will the child most likely thrive?
- Where is the child’s support network?
Our Minot family law attorney understands the goals of the courts and our team will communicate with you to understand your goals as well. If you are going through a divorce and believe that you or your children are not being represented fairly contact Rowenhorst Law at (701) 203-9220 for help.
