You can relax and trust in our understanding, experience and strong work ethic while you focus on keeping your children calm and worry-free.

A Variety Of Factors Affect Child Custody

The issues of child custody are complicated. Generally, a lawyer is necessary to help resolve care and visitation disputes in the short term, while creating a long-term plan for your children's future. Factors that may affect custody of the children include:

  • Each parent's relationship with the children
  • The parents' lifestyles
  • The parents' parenting capabilities
  • The children's wishes
  • The parents' financial situations
  • The children's personal needs

Emergency Or Temporary Relief For Children

In some cases, you may find it necessary to request immediate relief from an abusive or dangerous situation. The court system is designed to be open to all individuals with or without an attorney. However, emergency relief is specifically difficult to obtain without the advice of an experienced and knowledgeable attorney. Our office has been successful in obtaining emergency orders to protect children from immediate danger or temporary orders to resolve financial issues while we work through the divorce process.
