Custody

Protect Your Rights

As a parent you have the right to remain an integral part of your child’s life whether you are married, separated or divorced.

The Best Interests of the Child

In any divorce or separation involving children, child custody is often the primary issue between parents. Parents seek outcomes that they believe are in their best interest as parents as well as in the best interest of their children, which typically means there is a disagreement as to child custody in divorce and separation cases.  To make sure you understand your parental rights and child custody issues, it is imperative to hire an experienced family law attorney.

The best interests of the child is the standard the Courts use to resolve child custody and visitation issues. When parents are unable to negotiate a custody and visitation arrangement between themselves, a judge in family court will be asked to rule as to what custody arrangement most serves the best interests of the child.  The judge will consider a number of factors, including the child’s needs, the parenting abilities of the parents and the previous parenting arrangement.  Custody cases are determined on a case by case basis; with a custody arrangement individually crafted for your family.
