There are many forms of proceedings which can fall under the umbrella of Family/Child Custody. An unwed father may be seeking to establish custody over his biological child or children. A divorced parent may want to enforce or modify a parenting plan and corresponding child support worksheet. A party may wish to gain custody of a child who has been removed from a home by the Department of Children’s Services. The list could go on and on.
Because of the breadth of potential causes of action falling within the purview of this page, it would be unrealistic to touch on those individualized causes of action herein. However, the primary concern in cases involving the custody of minor children is what action by the court will be in the children’s best interests, and that is where I begin with my clients. Understanding the specific criteria by which a court analyzes what course of action will serve the best interests of the minor children in the suit helps my clients formulate a plan which gives them the best chance possible for success in their specific case.
My experience in Family and Child Custody matters places my clients in the strongest position possible when they have their day in court. What that position is will depend largely on the individual facts of your case, which is what we will discuss in our first meeting.
