Focusing On The Best Interests Of The Children

Protecting your children is of utmost importance. Whether you are seeking primary custody of the children, partial custody, or a shared custody arrangement, the Courts will look to see that a Custody Order is in the child’s best interest. The parties to a custody action are always encouraged to come to an agreement between themselves. A negotiated agreement often leaves clients with more control over the outcome, and in cases of child custody, serves the child’s best interest. Often however, the parties are not able to agree and the children may begin to suffer. Court proceedings may be necessary to establish or modify a custody schedule, or to enforce your custodial rights.

The most common issues in Child Custody cases are as follows:

  • Physical Custody (the Court will consider 16 factors before deciding what is in the child’s best interest)
  • Legal Custody
  • Partial Custody/Visitation for Parents
  • Partial Custody/Visitation for Grandparents
  • Paternity for Fathers
  • Paternity for Mothers
  • Relocation (a change in a residence of the child which significantly impairs the ability of a non relocating party to exercise custodial rights)
  • Adoption
  • Modification of an Existing Custody Order
  • Contempt of a Custody Order
  • Child Support
