Conflicts involving the custody and visitation of minor children are some of the most challenging types of cases heard in the probate and family courts. The court has to not only balance the needs of the parents, but the needs of the children, and the stakes are incredibly high for preserving children’s sense of wholeness within their family even as the family unit may be fracturing. Simultaneously, parents are working to figure out what arrangement is best for the children without putting the children unduly in the driver’s seat for making these huge decisions. It is a challenging balancing act.
Clear guidance and strong representation can help you keep your focus on your goals without getting tangled up in the difficult emotions surrounding issues of custody and visitation. To ensure the safety and best interest of the children involved, you need someone on your side who can support you with strength, passion, and focus.
