Finding The Solution That’s Right For You

Several factors are considered when determining custody for any child, but for a child who has special needs, you must account for even more. The most important consideration is what’s in the best interest of the child and how that affects their daily life. For a child with special needs, that may include:

  • The accessibility of both parents’ homes and vehicles
  • Both parents’ abilities to pay for and provide adequate medical care
  • Where and how the child currently receives medical care
  • Other factors related to the child’s health and individual needs

Divorce impacts everyone in the family differently and it’s important to consider all the ways your child will be affected, both physical and emotionally. We’re passionate about helping families with special needs children find the best solution for them.
