  • Temporary custody

Pursuing Alternative Methods To Resolve Your Child Custody Issues

In addition to providing superb litigation representation, our firm offers the collaborative process to address custody and visitation disputes. During this process, each party and each party's attorney all work together to reach a settlement that is focused on the interests of all parties and the children. When successful, this process allows us to create a parenting plan that meets both parents' needs while also meeting the children's needs without the risk and cost of a third party making this decision for you. This process then helps to build the foundation for a working relationship between the parents throughout the child's upbringing.
