Child Custody Lawyer

Negotiating a mutually acceptable parenting plan is crucial to child custody matters. Among other factors, child custody considers the children’s welfare and includes issues of:

  • Physical custody (the children’s primary place of residence and parent who makes the day-to-day decisions)
  • Legal custody (who has the right to make important life decisions on the child’s behalf)
  • Visitation schedules and how that will work
  • Grandparent and stepparent involvement
  • Issues around parental/family relocation
  • Protective orders and supervised visitation if necessary
