Child Custody

Child Custody Can Be A Heated & Emotional Issue

Any time a divorce proceeding involves children, it complicates matters. The relationship you develop with your former partner can greatly impact the development and mental health of your children.

We have declared, the needs of the children are of primary importance. Our goal is to create a win-win situation for parents so they can sustain a lifestyle where their children thrive.

We put my creative talents, experience and insight to use negotiating and developing child custody agreements and parenting schedules that work for families.

We have extensive experience handling complex cases for couples with children, as well as helping parents with:

• Post-judgment modifications of child support  (application)
Child custody and visitation agreements
• Enforcing grandparent rights to visitation

Ideally, it is preferable to handle these matters as privately as possible. For that reason, the collaborative law process may be a preferred method to develop and initial custody and visitation agreement or to negotiate a change in parenting plan.

I realize, however, that people cannot always reach an amicable resolution to Child Custody visitation issues, In such cases we will stand ready to aggressively and zealously pursue their position in court.  It doesn’t matter if it’s establishment, enforcement, modification or an emergency custody hearing we have the legal expertise to vigorously fight for your rights.

Child Custody Issues

Each year there are approximately 15 million children in the United States alone who experience the end of the family as they had known when their parents breakup. During that experience, due to a great deal of emotional upheaval, parents sometimes behave poorly. Their motivation can stem from wanting full custody, better visitation rights, lower court ordered payments and a host of other things that impact on children. As parents start to move forward with the divorce, they should remember that children have little say in the matter of dissolution therefore, it is important that parents implement the very best parenting skills they possess.

When it comes to the dissolution of marriage, even though the parents want out of the marriage, it’s usually the children who experience the greatest loss. The stability they had known is changing and they don’t know what to expect. And because the parents are so caught up in their own pain, they don’t always realize that to a child it feels like they are losing everything. It is in fact a very frightening time for a child and requires great sensitivity to their needs. As parents, it is up to us to help our children make sense out of what’s going on in their lives so that they are not left feeling angry and frightened or left with a sense of distrust towards others.
