Mental Illness and Child Custody
Divorce courts consider many different factors before granting child custody to either of the parents. Along with looking at financial stability as well as the child’s happiness, the mental state of each parent is another major factor. Parents who suffer from a mental disability or illness sometimes have a hard time getting custody of their children because the courts generally feel the parent cannot offer a stable home environment.
If you have a mental disability and feel the court wrongfully denied you custody of your children because of the disability, you need to stand up for rights. Let the Denton child custody lawyers of Alexander & Associates help you gain custody of your children. We will help you every step of the way so do not hesitate to contact us today at 972-420-6560.
Protecting Your Child Custody Rights
Just because you suffer from a mental illness does not mean that you automatically lose custody. To improve your case for custody, follow these guidelines:
- Undergo a professional psychiatric evaluation
- Seek treatment for your mental illness
- Show that you keep a regular schedule for medication, therapy, or other such treatment to manage the disorder
Even if you are admitted into a mental health care facility, it is important to stay in contact with your children to show the importance of your role as a parent.
If you or someone you love suffers from a mental disability and wants custody of his or her children, contact a professional legal representative to learn more about your rights in this situation. Call the Denton child custody attorneys of Alexander & Associates today at 972-420-6560 to discuss your case.
