What You Need To Know About Child Custody

Full legal and physical custody can be given to one parent, but in most cases, custody ends up being shared by both parents. It is typical that one parent will be designated as the primary physical custodian and the other becomes the secondary physical custodian. These roles may be decided in court by a judge.

We will represent you in all court hearings, aggressively advocating for your role as the primary caregiver. It is recommended that you have a drafted parenting plan ready before your custody hearing. We will help you draft a parenting plan that fits your needs, and most importantly, benefits your children. A parenting plan will include:

  • A visitation schedule, including weekends and holidays
  • Pickup and drop-off times and locations
  • Special considerations such as religious upbringing, decisions impacting education, after school activities and instructions for medical emergencies

We can also assist with filing a petition to modify child custody. Child custody modification litigation can be difficult and lengthy. We offer the knowledge and litigation skill to help you through the process.
