Child custody as a working mother

There are a number of factors that can affect how custody is awarded, and every parent is in a different position. Some parents may be very wealthy, while others may struggle to get by, living paycheck to paycheck. If you are a working mother, you may have a number of stressors in front of you as you approach the process of determining how custody will be awarded. Moreover, you may find yourself in the middle of a brutal dispute, which could disrupt your daily life in a myriad of ways. If you are very busy with your career, it is vital to prevent these challenges from getting in the way of your professional life while doing everything you can to secure your custody rights and protect your child’s best interests.

In years past, women were frequently awarded custody, but traditional roles have changed over the years. Now, it is imperative for both parents to prove that they have the resources to take care of their child. Furthermore, when deciding how to award custody, courts look into many different factors, such as whether or not a certain parent spends more time with their child and the quality of these relationships.

Some working mothers decide to put their career on pause in order to pursue custody and take care of their child, while others continue working. If you have been working full-time while the other parent stayed at home with your child, this could be an issue to address during a custody dispute.
