Why you should settle the issue of child custody out of court, if you reasonably can

Why you should settle the issue of child custody out of court, if you reasonably can:

Shuman v. Shuman, 406 P.3d 258, ¶ 10, 2017 UT App 192:

We are, of course, sensitive to the emotional undercurrents giving rise to Wesley’s challenge on appeal. This appears to have been “a very difficult and close case with meritorious arguments from both parties—both of whom love and care for their children.” See Peck v. Polanco, 2015 UT App 236, ¶ 14, 360 P.3d 780. “But the fact that the evidence could also have supported a determination that [Wesley] should [obtain joint custody or] gain primary physical custody of the children … does not” render the trial court’s findings inadequate or unsupported by the evidence, nor did it require an outright grant of custody in his favor. See id.
