Working Together To Solve Child Custody Disputes
When a relationship or marriage is ending, if the couple has children, they will often engage in several discussions concerning child custody and residential time. In many cases, the co-parents will find themselves frustrated with one another, and fail to find an agreement on these important issues.
At the Fiori Law Office, Inc., our attorneys are committed to helping you and your family develop the right custody and parenting plan for your situation. We aim to find an agreement that keeps both parents involved when appropriate while keeping you out of the courtroom.
Protecting The Best Interests Of The Child
Our attorneys work tirelessly to negotiate a child custody and visitation agreement that allows you to protect time with your child. It is our goal to work toward an agreement that is focused on the best interests of the child.
However, some parties are convinced that they will be able to obtain sole custody if they take their cases to court. They have examples of behavior that they feel demonstrates that one parent is not fit to care for the child.
Unless there are drug and alcohol issues, severe disabilities or signs of domestic violence, courts generally try to issue orders that allow both parents to play an active role in their child’s life. Many of the courts in our area recognize the benefits of a shared custody agreement because they realize how important it is for the child to have meaningful relationships with both parents.
Courts base their custody and residential time decisions on what it considers to be in the best interests of the child. Several different factors go into this determination and we will discuss this information with you when we are preparing the strategy for your case. We help you understand the things that you need to do to improve your chances of obtaining a favorable custody and visitation ruling.
