Finding a Quality Child Custody Attorney

Child Custody Attorneys

For those impacted by the event of a divorce, one of the first things they may be considering is consulting with a lawyer. Not only are court proceedings for child custody detailed and challenging, but there is an emotional aspect which requires the assistance of an experienced attorney. They can help alleviate the weight of not only the loss of a marriage, but also help you through a trying child custody lawsuit.

No matter the situation, your attorney can keep you from losing time with your daughter or son. The court system will evaluate the following circumstances when it comes to deciding primary custody, and the final details of your child custody case. When the judge is considering each category, an attorney can verbally defend you to ensure the verdict continues to lean in your favor.

Parenting Agreement

A specific parenting plan that both parents will need to uphold, and are held accountable by the court of law to follow at all times.

Parental Alienation

Due to the emotional nature of a divorce, a child may reject one parent, which can be very painful. In response, that parent may alienate themselves from their child.

Custody Percentage

Defined as exactly how often each parent gets to see his or her child, also known as a timeshare. This is typically the main concern of debate in the courtroom.

Holiday Visitation Hours

Holidays are an important time of the year, and it is key to a successful child custody plan that parents know which holidays they get to spend time with his or her child.

Non-Holiday Visitation Schedule

A schedule created so each parent knows which days of the week are their booked time with his or her child, and how they are going to transport them to the other parent in a respectful and peaceful manner.

Due to the various categories that entail a child custody case, choosing an attorney can get you the desired days and hours with your child. We understand the emotional complexities associated with the verdict. The last thing we want is for you to feel like you have lost your child. Your attorney can ensure your child is well cared for and gets the same quality of life he or she had while the parents were together.

We do not believe a child should suffer the consequences of an action taken by one, or both parents. If you hire an experienced child custody attorney, they can fight for your rights as a parent, and motivate the court to make a decision based on what will provide a healthy growing environment for your child.
