Custody & Visitation
Issues surrounding children — custody and support in particular — can be some of the most contentious elements in a divorce, but it serves your kids best if you can work things out. We’ll help you understand how child support is calculated, how judges make decisions about parenting time, help you incorporate into your own life those factors that judges rely upon to give maximum parenting time and how to work together with the child’s parent to do what’s best for your children.
We have effectively represented hundreds of clients in actions involving both contested and consent child custody cases.
Our child custody attorneys understand these cases are often highly emotional and can be profoundly consequential to our clients and their children. Our attorneys ensure that each client understands the strengths and weaknesses of their particular case so they can make the best parental custody decision for themselves and their families.
