When seeking a court order for child custody, you should always be thinking, "What is in the best interest of my child?" Before issuing an order for child custody, the Court will typically require both parents to attend a mediation session to assist the parties in reaching an agreement on what arrangement is best for their child(ren), in their particular situation. One of our experienced attorneys can assist you in preparing for the mediation session, and preparing a plan for child custody. Should it be necessary, we also represent clients in litigating their child custody issues.
If you are seeking a modification to a previous court order or judgment regarding child custody, you will have to demonstrate to the court a change in circumstances to justify a modification. Consulting with one of our attorneys may be necessary to determine whether your circumstances justify a modification and how to most effectively make your case to the Court.
