In disputes over custody, sometimes the central issue in dispute can be a particular child's health concern. Often, the child's primary carer has been responsible for seeing specialists, dealing with the treatment for the health condition and administering medication. While one parent might have intimate knowledge of a particular state, the other parent might not be so knowledgeable.
In family law, medical conditions can impact on the outcome of the case. If the case is one of child custody factors such as whether or not one party has the means and ability to care for the child with a medical condition will be taken into account. For example, a child might require regular visits to the doctor due to his/her medical condition, if one parent works full time and can’t facilitate this than it is likely that time might be awarded to the parent that can facilitate the care of the child with the medical condition. If you have a medical condition, it may impact your family law property case. You or your spouse might be awarded more because you have higher future needs than the other one due to your medical condition.
