Facts: Jeremy and Jennifer are devoted parents to their twins, but are increasingly incompatible as a couple. They file for divorce. Both parents want to remain as dominant influences in the twin’s lives.
We understand what it means to say that child custody decisions revolve around an allocation of rights between you and the other parent regarding your children. These rights include where your children primarily live (which may impact child support obligations). Other decisions relate to the amount of time each parent has with the children, as well as how you and the other parent make decisions about your children’s education, healthcare and religious upbringing.
We believe that you and the other parent should do your best to negotiate an agreement together that resolves all custody issues involving your children. Negotiation is the more satisfying and cost effective way to obtain an agreement because working together you can potentially reach a settlement faster. If settlement can’t be reached, we can then put together a strategy, which includes court intervention to finally resolve the outstanding issues.
These are just a few of the many questions we look forward to helping you answer. We see our mission as explaining your rights and responsibilities in this negotiation to you, and helping you to devise a strategy so that you and the other parent can create an agreement that works for both of you. If there are any unresolved issues between you and the other parent, we typically go to Court to use available legal remedies to facilitate closure on each issue.
We know you want what is best for your children.
Resolving custody issues can be as challenging as it is divisive. Many emotions must be managed to ensure that each party’s focus is on the best interests of the children. We believe that the more effort parents invest in resolving these issues, the more likely the children will thrive in their new environments. We try to help our clients control their emotional reactions and focus rationally on what will be best for the children.
We seek to find the best solutions for our clients. Please contact our office to learn how we can help you move your life forward in the positive direction you are looking for.
