Child custody is a very serious matter because it can impact the entire future of a child. When parents are going through a child custody battle, they must think carefully about how each decision will impact the child. One important thing that they have to determine if they are trying to work things out through collaborative methods or mediation is what type of custody model is going to be used.
Since the time we are kids, we are taught not to lie. Lying can be hurtful and get us into trouble. Unfortunately, when two people are divorcing, they can find it quite tempting to lie in the interest of self-preservation.
