Without question, child custody is the most critical and consequential area of any divorce case in which children are involved. Although our firm is well-known for dealing effectively with complex property division, we are perhaps even better known for dealing effectively and sensitively with child custody disputes.
We are well aware that ensuring that a child will be cared for properly is essential to that child’s future well-being and to the long-term well-being of the parent we represent.
No child custody case that comes to our firm is considered “routine.” We never try to apply a boilerplate solution. In addition to dealing with such common issues as blended families and multiple divorces, we have been involved in child custody cases that have entailed grappling with more difficult problems.
Drug and/or alcohol abuse on the part of parents or children
Chronic physical health issues
Mental health problems
Sexual abuse and sexual acting out
Special needs children
We all know that family situations change over time. Children grow older. Child support may need to be increased to deal with the child’s needs today. Parents may need to move because of an employment opportunity or a family crisis, which may require a change in custody or in visitation schedules.
In addition to pursuing final orders in a new child custody case, our firm can help you with:
Modification of child custody arrangements
Child custody cases in which the parents are not married
