Child Custody

Montana court encourages divorcing parents to share their parental responsibilities as equally as possible. It is recommended that the parents create their own custody arrangement and parenting plan (defining both legal and physical custody of a child) and then submit it to the court. It does not matter if the plan is presented jointly by the spouses or separately by each party. In either case, the judge will consider it while taking into account the best interests of the child before awarding sole or joint physical and legal custody.

To decide custody, the family court analyzes the parents' and child's preferences, the child's adjustment to the current home and school, his/her development needs, the nature of the parent-child relationship, health and mental condition of all the parties involved, any history of domestic violence or child abuse, and other circumstances which may seem significant to the judge in a particular divorce case.

Our smooth breakup allowed us to file for uncontested divorce and we just decided to arrange it as simply as possible. Online divorce seemed to be a good idea, and now I'm sure we did it right. All the papers were prepared with no issues and I'm pleased with the price. Thanks.

I think that all the papers related to a certain county with its own legal nuances would be prepared correctly only by a Montana-based company. So that's why I used montanaonlinedivorce and I was really satisfied. My divorce papers were completed in a timely manner and I had no troubles with filing. That was a really smooth process and you can be confident with your filing.

It always seemed to me that divorce must be a much more complicated process. I couldn't imagine how I would cope with that. Where do I get all those papers, how to fill them out and where to go and what to do? So, I was really glad I found montanaonlinedivorce.com and they took care of all the paperwork and gave me clear instructions on how to file with the court. That made the whole process so much easier!
