Ending a marriage or relationship raises many issues. When children are involved, the situation is more complex as custody and child support issues surface. To ensure a good outcome is reached, you should contact a skilled family lawyer.
Our law firm routinely handles child custody cases and can help to determine the best custody arrangement for you and your children. We will review all the facts, identify the children’s preferences, and explain how the law impacts your situation. We will work with you to create a custody plan for your children.
Both physical and legal custody of the child must be resolved in a Child Custody case. Physical custody is awarded to the Parent(s) with whom the child will reside, while legal custody sets out the decision making process for the child, including the right to decide education preferences, religious upbringing, medical treatment, and sports and other extracurricular activities by the child. Both must be resolved in child custody cases.
Our compassionate child custody attorney will work with you to assure your parental rights and protect the children’s best interests.
