Are you going through the divorce process? Are you concerned about what this means with regard to your relationship with your child?
As a father, it's easy to believe that the court will favor your ex-wife when it comes to matters of child custody and support. While this may have been the case in the past, courts are more interested than ever before in doing what's best for the child. In most cases, this means ensuring that both parents are part of his or her life.
