Protecting Your Parental Rights

We will not be satisfied until we have achieved a result that protects your rights and represents the best interests of your children. While we are strong trial attorneys, we have found that, where possible, it is best for parents to reach an agreement amicably. After all, wouldn't you rather have a say in the outcome rather than leaving it up to the judge?

In almost all situations, this means that parents have joint physical and joint legal custody.

  • Physical custody pertains to where the children will live.
  • Legal custody covers issues such as the child's schooling, mental and physical well-being and religious upbringing.

In rare cases, sole custody can be obtained, but this typically requires one parent to actually be a danger to the child. It is more common for a court to grant physical custody to one parent with the other parent receiving visitation rights to make sure he or she is still involved in the child's life.

Modification Of Child Custody And Child Support

A modification of either custody or support may be in order if your child's needs have changed, or if one parent has started or lost a job, begun a new relationship or experienced a loss of earning potential in another way.

Our team can help you seek or prevent modification of child custody and support. We strive to make sure that custody and support arrangements are a reflection of the actual circumstances and means of the parties.

​With our extensive business backgrounds, we are trained and practiced in analyzing financial information. We apply our financial knowledge to your unique situation and advocate for you, so you can continue living comfortably and maintain the lifestyle you are accustomed to and deserve.
