Child Custody & Visitation

  • What happens if we cannot agree on custody?

    If you and the other parent are unable to agree on custody or visitation, a judge will make the decision for you. There are several steps to finalizing a custody plan. However, custody and visitation can be
    decided on a temporary basis if there are immediate problems.
    It is important too, to remember that your custody plan can be changed if it doesn’t work. If your
    circumstances change, you can return to court and request a change in parenting plan even if a
    temporary or permanent order has already been established.
    To learn more about child custody, contact the attorneys at Family Law Center.

  • What happens to our children when we separate?

    You can determine what happens. The best solution for children is for the parents to reach an agreement on how they will share their children’s time. Your parenting plan can become a court order;
    a judge will approve a custody plan agreed upon by both parents.

    Divorce is a time of great stress for the entire family. Children often become the innocent victims of this stressful experience. Children need nurturing and understanding during this time of emotional upheaval. Instead, because of their own fears and anxieties, divorcing parents usually have less emotional support available to give to their children. As a result, while struggling through this
    chaotic time, parents who divorce make unintentional mistakes that can be very damaging to their children.
