Most child custody issues are decided out of the courtroom, either through person to person discussions, mediation, or other means. In fact, according to the American Bar Association, less than five percent of custody decisions are made by a judge. Whether your custody dispute or decision goes to the courtroom or not, it is important to work with an experienced child custody attorney to ensure that you and your child’s best interests are adhered to.

In the Child’s Best Interests
If a judge makes a decision for you, they will decide in favor of the child’s best interests, which is why it is important to work with an attorney who knows how to show that your parenting, care, and supervision are, indeed, in the child’s best interests. Our attorneys know how to gather this important proof, which comes in the form of documentation, family, friend, and teacher statements, and much more.
