A custody and parenting time plan may be achieved through agreement of the parents or by court order.
Nowadays, shared parenting is the preferred parenting arrangements, in which both parents have decision-making authority for key matters relating to the upbringing of the child. Our lawyers work diligently to create detailed plan and parenting time schedule to fit your particular needs.
Our lawyers are skilled at negotiating workable custody and visitation arrangements that protect our clients' rights and enable them to enjoy rich parental relationships with their children.
When parents cannot arrive at an agreement, the court will make the decision for them. Our role in such cases is to work with psychologists, family court personnel, social workers and others to prove our client's fitness for custody and the ability of our client to provide an environment that promotes the "best interest of the child.”
A custody agreement or parenting plan agreed upon at the time of a divorce may no longer be in the best interests of the child when conditions change. If you seek or want to prevent a modification, our firm is well equipped to help you achieve your goals.
