Child Custody

It’s all about what’s in the best interest of your children.

I have seen many changes in the law over the last few decades in this area of legal practice. You should know the difference between primary physical custody, sole physical custody, partial physical custody, sole legal custody and shared legal custody, and visitations. There are specific legal procedures which must be followed where a parent intends to move out of the county or state in which he or she resides and that parent has primary physical custody of a child or children. When these procedures are not followed, there could be disastrous consequences.

It is not unusual for a parent who is involved in a custody dispute to make erroneous assumptions regarding their legal rights. The bottom line, however, is what the courts determine to be in the best interests of a minor child. You should know your legal rights and have skillful, legal representation in any custody proceeding which you may be contemplating or in which you are involved. You also need a lawyer who understands the very sensitive nature of a custody case and the trauma which can impact on parents and children. You need a lawyer who can listen.

I have been handling child custody cases since 1976, and I have handled about every kind of custody case imaginable. Yet each case is unique and requires the attention of a lawyer who will listen to you – one who understands your problem and cares. Fees for a child custody case will vary according to complexity, but can be as affordable as $350.00 plus court costs.
