Resolving child custody issues is perhaps the most difficult part of a divorce or separation. This is a critical component, however, and should be handled with great care and thought. The decisions made concerning physical custody, legal custody and visitation will affect your children and you indefinitely. Things will not be the same, that is true. But your family and your children can still be ok with a new situation.

Our skills and talents have generated positive results for many clients.
Determining Child Custody And Visitation
If you cannot reach an agreement as to custody and visitation terms with your spouse, court intervention is necessary. Mediation is required before you get to court. In some circumstances, a guardian ad litem is appointed to represent the children’s interests. Depending on your case, there may be several layers involved in reaching a workable resolution. Some custody situations involve removal and relocation, where the parent with primary physical custody seeks to move away. We will walk you through these potential steps and issues and you will know what to expect.
