I am proud to be the recipient of many awards and accolades for my legal work, and to have the highest possible ratings from Martindale-Hubbell®, AV Preeminent® in family law. Legal issues surrounding child custody are exceptionally important. When parents have joint custody, each parent holds equal rights to make decisions regarding the health, education, religion and all the other critical decisions for the child's welfare. Are you seeking joint custody? Whether you are facing a contested divorce and you are aware that the other parent will challenge your wishes, or both parents believe that joint custody is the right decision, I can assist you.
Joint legal custody makes it possible for each parent to hold equal rights and responsibilities for the important decisions about their children. It does not necessarily mean that the children will share time equally with each parent in a living situation, but no major decision about the child's health and welfare can be made without the agreement of the other parent, which can be extremely important to the welfare of the child.
Joint physical custody is when the children essentially have two homes, one with each parent, and spend close to equal time with each. The arrangements can be different from family to family, but the children have the advantage of spending more time with each parent and are often happy with this arrangement once it becomes a familiar routine.
I consistently get results for my clients, and my professional skills have proven to be a great advantage for many parents facing legal issues about child custody. You can trust me and everyone at my firm to be committed to helping you achieve your objectives if you are seeking joint custody of your child or children. These matters are at the top of the list for a concerned parent, and you can be confident that I will address this matter carefully and professionally.
