For most parents, nothing is more important than their children. Child custody issues can be among the most emotionally sensitive: the more time the child spends with one parent, the less time he or she spends with the other.
We will work hard to meet your goals for your child custody arrangement. We provide caring, honest, personal service and we strive to maintain the highest standards of integrity.
Our firm works to resolve child custody disputes with the goal of preserving family relationships.
Since contentious adversarial litigation between parents can have negative psychological effects on children, we encourage more cooperative forms of family dispute resolution, including:
Helping You Discover Alternative Ways to Resolve Child Custody Disputes
- Collaborative Law: the parents, their attorney, a mental health professional and a financial professional engage in roundtable, interest-based negotiations to reach a child custody arrangement that everyone finds agreeable.
- Divorce Mediation: communicating through a neutral, licensed mediator, both parents work out their child custody settlement until they find something agreeable to both.
If these cooperative approaches don’t work, our attorney will be firm in their resolve, fighting to achieve your goals in litigation and negotiations over child custody.

We also handle issues related to child custody that can occur months and years after the divorce settlement has been issued. Learn more about parental relocation, divorce modifications and enforcements.
