Long-term Family Solutions
Custody cases can arise during divorce, between unmarried parents, or in same-sex relationships. It is also possible for a custody dispute to arise between grandparents' and other members of a family. When children's rights are involved, it is important to work with an experienced advocate who will take the time to understand your objectives and protect the best interests of the child. At Johnson & Cohen, LLP, we offer strategic advocacy focused on protecting our clients and their children in custody disputes.
Child Custody and Divorce
Most child custody disputes will arise during a legal separation or a divorce. You may be concerned about protecting your right to full custody or wonder how a visitation agreement will work. The courts will make a final determination based on a review of individual circumstances, taking into consideration the fitness of each parent. It is important to have an attorney who can present evidence on your behalf and aggressively defend your interests in negotiation or in court.
Our lawyers are experienced with custody cases involving:
- Sole and joint-custody
- Parenting time and visitation
- Modifications and relocation
- Enforcement of custody order
- Grandparents' rights
Our attorneys understand that custody is emotionally complicated and can have a long-term impact on your rights and your children. We will take the time to answer your questions and concerns, identify the legal issues you face and develop a comprehensive solution that works for your family in the long-term. While we are strategic in negotiation and settlement, we are also prepared to take your case to trial when the circumstances dictate.
Trusted service. Zealous advocacy. Solid results.
