Child custody and visitation are just two of many concerns when facing a divorce. The future of the children and the ability to spend quality time with them, even after the dissolution of your marriage, is the most important thing to a parent. We have always put our primary focus on fighting for our clients in getting the custody of their children and have fair visitation rights. We take pride in representing parents in their custody battles and working to get a favorable outcome, not only for the parents, but also for the children.
During the divorce process, there are many questions that arise that pertain to child custody such as visitation, decisions made by the court, how the process will affect the children, and others. When the court issues a divorce decree it will outline who the child will live with, as well as the conditions of visitation relating to the non-custodial parent.
Most often the parents will work out the children’s living arrangements with the assistance of an attorney or thru mediation. In the case that the parties cannot come to an agreement on which party will take primary custody then the court has the obligation to make the decision. This decision will be based on the best interest of the child.
To do this the court takes into consideration many factors to determine which parent will be best suited to take care of the child/children. Therefore, many parents opt for joint custody to ensure that the child will see both parents equally.
When representing you, we will sit with you and go over the details of your case.
