As an experienced child advocate who now does a broader array of family law matters, my focus is to work towards a resolution that always keeps the best interests of the children at its center. Whether it is a custody, adoption, divorce, or child abuse matter, it is the child who is the most affected and whose interests and desires should never be put out of focus.
If you are getting divorced and have children, part of the divorce agreement will involve determining where and with whom the children will live. A child custody lawyer can help you negotiate custody, either by agreement or in court. The custodial parent (the one the child lives with) earns the legal right to make decisions regarding the child's lifestyle, welfare, and education. Some parents opt for joint custody, which means children divide their time between both parents' homes, and parents share the right to make decisions on behalf of the children. If you as parents are unable to agree on child custody, a judge will decide for you.
