Child Custody is a legal procedure to determine which parent will have primary and residential care of a child or children. Child custody is often highly contested in the course of a divorce (marriage dissolution), after a separation of an unwed couple, those seeking a modification to a custody agreement or court order, or in the unfortunate circumstance of the death of one or both parents.
The duty of your child custody (visitation) attorney or lawyer is to represent your legal rights in an effort to effectively show the court that your goal for child custody and visitation issues are in the best interest of the child.
The courts will consider many factors when making decisions regarding child custody and visitation issues. Many times, in an effort to gain favor with the court, one parent or both make false claims or embellish the facts of behaviors or actions of the other parent. This practice is highly discouraged, because if proven false in child custody & visitation proceedings, the courts may react negatively and harshly in favor of the parent who was wrongfully accused. When this tactic is use against you, we will aggressively defend you to show the allegations are false. The bottom line in child custody & visitation proceedings is what is in the best interest of the child.
The court will listen to both sides, analyze the facts which have been presented, and render a court order regarding child custody and visitation based upon those facts under the guidelines of marital and family law.
