Posted by Kinman and Associates on April 21st, 2021

Child custody battles can be complicated and replete with stress. Anything involving the kids could bring about heightened emotions. 

Your goal now is to win your child custody by following family law in Burnaby. With that in mind, here are some do’s and don’ts that you might want to keep in mind:

  1.   Do try to work with your ex

Set emotions aside and try to be as civil as possible. You might have your differences but what’s important is that you put the needs of the kids first. Don’t try to be adverse all the time and hamper the progress of the case by being difficult to your ex. This is a mistake and the judge might not see you as a fit parent to the kids.

  1. Do read more about family law in Burnaby

Don’t be ignorant about the process. Even if you have a lawyer, you would still want to do some reading about family law in Burnaby, particularly the laws that govern child custody. You would want to ensure that you have a fighting chance by using the law to your advantage.

You can also read more about the experiences of others when it comes to getting custody of their kids. You might be able to pick up some tips that will be helpful in your own case. If there is a case similar to yours, follow that case and the outcome.

  1. Don’t neglect your time with your kids

Even when the case is still ongoing, you would not want to neglect your time with the kids. Spend as much time with them as possible. Make sure you are not late in picking them up as this can be used against you. You can also take photos or chronicle experiences in a journal so that if the other party suggests that you are a negligent spouse, there are photos and other evidence that you can use.

  1. Do keep the children out of it

Don’t try to make the children hate your ex. That is still their parent and you would want to preserve their relationship with the other parent as well. Even if you hate your ex, don’t try to talk about it in front of the kids. Make sure you also don’t fight in front of the kids.

  1. Don’t forget to get the help of an experienced lawyer

Family law in Burnaby is a complicated matter. It’s good to have an experienced family lawyer such as Kinman & Associates who will back you up. With their experience in these cases, they should be able to give you the best advice and formulate winning strategies that will help you get custody of your children.

Focus on being a good parent to your kids and family law in Burnaby will be on your side.
