“Custody battles” are stressful and often times heart-breaking for everyone involved. The need to establish child custody in mediation or court is typically a result of divorce, but we can argue for child custody in non-traditional cases as well. Our child custody lawyers, Art Fulmer, Jr. and Christal Holmes, will argue for what is in the best interest of the child on your behalf. We aren’t just resolving a dispute between the parties involved. We are caring throughout the process and will explain you and your children’s rights each step of the way.
A family law court will typically order shared custody between both parents. If one parental environment is harmful or detrimental to the child’s well-being, you need one of our strong family law attorneys to present evidence for sole custody to be awarded by a judge. If neither environment is harmful or detrimental, you will need our attorneys to explore the percentage of time you will share.
A wide variety of factors related to the child’s needs will be reviewed as the court determines the parameters for custody. Examples of the questions our family law attorneys explore are: Who is the more involved parent? Who completes the child’s daily routines? Does the other parent have a daily schedule that prevents involvement? It is also important not to disrupt the child’s already established lifestyle and school atmosphere. These are just examples of the early discussions we will have during our free consultation to determine child custody arrangements. We will take our time to speak with you, build a strong case, and effectively represent you in court.
A family law court will typically order that custody be shared. Alternately, the judge will rule that one parental environment is harmful or detrimental to the child’s well-being, in which case they will mandate sole custody to the other parent.
