Complex Custody Attorney

Custody of your children is one of the most critical determinations in a divorce proceeding. The factors that go into custody and the process that determines custody is complex. If you don't have an extremely experienced attorney on your side, your custodial rights could be significantly diminished or may be lost altogether.

We Can Help You With Any Custody Challenge

The lawyers at our firm have spent thousands of hours researching and litigating complex child custody issues. We are extremely skilled and have handled a wide array of issues, including those involving:

  • Children with special needs
  • Children who have been molested or abused
  • Parents with substance abuse issues
  • Parents with unusual work schedules, including military parents
  • Parents with a history of domestic violence
  • Grandparent or third-party custody

Often with these types of situations, we find it is in the child's best interests to fight for a temporary order for custody at the beginning of the case. We then work with specialists to ensure the child or children get the help they need with child counseling and therapy.

Understanding Physical Custody Vs. Legal Custody

In a divorce, it is important for parents to understand the different types of custody and what they mean. Physical custody refers to where a child lives on a daily basis. The parent who has physical custody makes sure the child's day-to-day needs are met.

Legal custody on the other hand concerns who has the right to make important decisions about the child, such as education, religion, health care and other major issues. Often, legal custody is shared between both parents, but there may be circumstances where that is not appropriate.
