Parents parting ways can be viewed at as a traumatic situation. Although it may be good for the parents to no longer be in a relationship, their divorce or separation can be a trying time for the children involved. A child has been accustomed to their life with both parents, making it difficult to acclimate to a life much different than this. This makes custody matters both an emotional and vital time for everyone involved, as what is in the best interest of the child may not be what one or both parents want.
At our law firm, we understand that it can take time to establish a workable custody arrangement. Even when both parents are happy with an arrangement, this does not mean that they will be happy with it until their children reach the age of majority.
In addition to establishing an initial order, our law firm is often tasked with amending these orders. As children age, their needs change. It may be more beneficial to live with one parent instead of going from one house to the other during the school week.
Additionally, circumstances could change significantly, resulting in the need to relocate. Relocation could cause major issues when it comes to custody orders. However, our law firm understands how best to present these matters, and we do our best to help our clients achieve a favorable result. For our clients seeking to relocate with a child, we help them illustrate not only the needs and benefits of this move, but also highlight how relocation with this parent is in the best interest of the child.
