Old timers may recognize this as well known lyrics from a Rolling Stones Song. In the song, time was on Mick Jagger’s side (Stones lead singer for you young folks) but in family court if you are trying to get custody it often is not. If you are going through a divorce, want custody of your kids, and they are living with the other parent, you need to move fast. Every day that they are not with you lessens your change of being awarded custody as judges often make orders based on what the parents are already doing. If you think they are better off living with the other parent, that is not a problem. But, if you believe they will be better off on a long term basis with you, the faster you move to file your case and get a Motion for Temporary Relief filed the better your chances will be. Don’t know what a Motion for Temporary Relief is, stay tuned for my next blog post.
