Creating A Parenting Plan

Parenting plans are critical to establishing a routine and creating stability for children after divorce. A parenting plan breaks down in detail when the child will be with each parent, how holidays will be handled and the protocol for transfers. Our attorneys are adept at crafting parenting plans that work, even for parents whose schedules are complicated.

Protecting Your Rights And Your Children

Our attorneys understand that custody and visitation disputes can be very hard on children. Rather than unnecessarily inflaming matters that are potentially contentious, we try to resolve custody and visitation disputes as efficiently and amicably as possible, while fully safeguarding our clients' rights.

We are also mindful that parents often have different views about what is best for the welfare of their children. When it is necessary to fight for our clients in the courtroom, we offer trial attorneys who are highly skilled and experienced.
