Divorce with common children is inevitably accompanied by a dispute associated with them.
Determining the child's place of residence is an important stage in the divorce process, which entails difficulties. A family lawyer who knows all the intricacies of this procedure will help you deal with them.
The child's place of residence is determined by mutual agreement. If we cannot agree, then the issue is resolved in court and a statement of claim is filed with the court.

Necessary documents for the court:
  • birth certificates of children
  • divorce certificates
  • documents confirming that you have sufficient financial capabilities to raise a child
  • characteristics on you from neighbours and from work,
  • information about your place of residence and normal living conditions for the child
  • occasionally a psychologist's advice is required.
The distance of the child's intended place of residence to the school or kindergarten, section, proximity to a medical institution will also be important for the court.
It can take a long time to collect all the necessary documents, but it will help you a positive outcome of the litigation for you.
