Child Custody

You want to be sure that throughout the divorce, your children's best interests are being considered. Often parents disagree about what is in the children's best interests. When they cannot agree, professional intervention may be appropriate and in some cases, court intervention becomes necessary.

The court considers various factors in determining what is in your children's "best interest." We will help educate you so you understand the factors that the court considers in determining "best interest" and how those factors relate to your case, your children and their needs.

When you divorce, decisions have to be made about how your children will be cared for when you and your spouse begin to live in separate homes. "Custody" is a term that references how decisions will be made regarding your children after the divorce: will both parents have input into decisions regarding the children's health, education and welfare (joint legal custody), or will major decisions be made by one parent (sole custody)? We will help you assess, based on the facts of your case, what your options are and the reasonableness of your goals, given your family's situation. "Custody" is a decision you and your spouse agree upon, or if you cannot agree, that the court will impose. "Residential Custody" is another decision that refers to the home where the children will be primarily residing. "Custody", however, is different from "Visitation" or "Parenting Time."
