I Will Fully Prepare You for Your Case

Child custody cases can become hostile. For that reason, I will focus on making sure you know the best way to respond to the other party without losing favor in court. I set reasonable expectations for my child custody clients, making sure they understand what they are entitled to as well as what the other side is entitled to.

I will walk through the unique circumstances of your case to determine what is in the best interest of your children; including contacting teachers, doctors, and counselors to testify on your behalf if necessary. I will discuss with you the possibility of hiring a psychologist to conduct a custodial evaluation. This could be the edge you need and the difference between winning and losing your custody or visitation case.

There are several different types of custody:

  • Sole legal custody– A parent with sole custody makes all major decisions for the child on their own without being required to consult the other parent. This includes decisions about religion, school, day care, and medical care. However, the other parent must be informed when a decision has been made.
  • Joint legal custody– Major decisions are discussed and joint agreement must be reached before parenting decisions are made.
  • Physical or residential custody– Refers to where the child is living. If primary custody is with one of the parents, a visitation schedule generally needs to be established with the non-residential parent.
