Child Custody

child custody lawyers

One of the most painful aspects of a divorce, or sharing a child, are the decisions about child custody. How child custody time will be divided can be very difficult, frustrating and even frightening and emotions such as anger & resentment can quickly take over. It is important for parents to remember that no matter how challenging a child custody dispute is, it is even harder on your children. It is important to try to keep focus on achieving a solution that is in the best interests of your children. Sometimes, this means some give and take until a custody agreement can be reached that is fair and everyone can live with. Other times, it is clear that the best interests of the children will only be served by going to court. The child custody attorneys on our team are attentive, trustworthy and effective legal advocates. They will relentlessly negotiate fair resolution to custody disputes either through mediation or trial.

Under no circumstances should you wait to contact our child custody attorneys to discuss your questions surrounding child custody and child visitation guidelines and to discuss your unique situation.

Important questions must be considered when determining how to divide or share child custody.

  • How willing is the other parent to honor frequent and continuing contact by both parents?
  • Has there been abusive contact by either of the parents in the past?
  • Does one parent offer more stability for the children during this difficult transition?
  • Are both parents willing and able to share in important decisions involving the children — and actually come to an agreement?

In most situations, it is in the interests of the children for the parents to work out a child custody agreement that involves shared parenting. Although the children may reside primarily with one parent (physical custody), both parents should be given time for parenting, nurturing and guiding — either as the primary custodial parent, or as the parent with ample visitation time (parenting time). We can help you negotiate a child custody and visitation agreement that serves the best interests of your children and preserves your interests as a parent.
