While there are many issues that must be resolved in a divorce, issues involving children tend to be the most emotionally charged. Child custody and visitation, as well as child support issues, are often hotly contested by both parties.

Our divorce attorneys strive to resolves these matters as efficiently as possible while protecting the interests of our clients and their children.

Negotiating Child Custody and Support Issues in Divorce

What happens to the children is a question often fiercely disputed in a divorce. Spouses often disagree on what is best for the children and require the assistance of a third party to hash out these issues. If you and your spouse cannot come to an amicable agreement on child custody and visitation issues, you will likely be sent to mediation to work them out. The mediator is there to facilitate an agreement without having to go to court.

When dealing with child issues in divorce, staying out of court is recommended. Reaching an agreement on these issues through negotiation or mediation saves a significant about of time and money. Moreover, avoiding a contentious legal battle helps preserve a positive relationship between parents, which is essential to working together as co-parents in the future.
