Child Custody

Matters of child custody are understandably of great concern to divorcing and separated parents. Child custody issues can continue to be a source of friction between parents until the children reach eighteen years of age. It is possible that one spouse will request unreasonable custody arrangements, causing pain, friction and stress for all parties involved, especially the children. We believe our role is to minimize the hurtful impact of custody battles by providing reasonable and fair advocacy. We work to achieve child custody arrangements that are practical, fair, and in the best interests of the children. We represent clients in matters involving:

  • Establishment of child custody orders (awards of primary custody, equal custody, and partial custody)
  • Modifications to existing custody orders
  • Parental relocations
  • Grandparent visitation
  • Contempt of child custody orders

Our goal is to help divorcing and separated parents to resolve custody disputes amicably.  We work diligently to help clients consider issues such as parent’s schedules, children’s educational needs and activities, tuition, and relocation issues so as to arrive at the most desirable custody terms possible in the best interest of the children involved. When litigation is necessary, we provide strong representation and have great success in gaining favorable terms for our clients and their children.
