Helping With Child Custody, Visitation & Support Updates Or Modifications
There are a number of child custody issues that end up needing to either get hammered out by the parents or by the court. There is a dichotomy here. If the parents cannot reach an agreement as to how the situation should be handled, then the courts have to step in and decide the issue for both parents and the children. Contested custody agreements cost a lot of money, takes a lot of time, and puts the children in the crossfire of a battle between two parents. Two parents coming to a mutual agreement on the matter saves money, generally can end amicably, and allows the children a seamless transition into what will be a major change in their lives.
The Lawrence Law Office offers former a couples an opportunity to manage their custody arrangements themselves. If no agreement is possible or mediation has already been tried—and failed—we can also advocate on behalf of one party’s interests. Give us a call or contact us online for more information.
