Family Law and Divorce Attorney

Child Custody

During a divorce or separation, children are oftentimes the most negatively affected. Changes in schedules and routines can have a lasting impact on a child’s adjustment. Although divorce and separation is a painful process for the adults, the best interest of the child is still prioritized. Therefore, child custody and the related subject of visitation rights can become emotionally charged and highly contentious and can raise many questions in child custody proceeding.

Whether by consent, mediation, or court, there are many technical legal issues to consider when deciding on a child custody arrangement. There are even different variations of child custody that may be considered. When there are so many relevant factors involved in determining child custody arrangements, you need a knowledgeable lawyer who can effectively advocate for you and your children.

No matter if you are dealing with a bitterly contested custody dispute or if you and the other party can generally agree on the arrangement, it is important to have an attorney advocate for you. Our firm works closely with the client, school teachers, therapists, pediatricians, and any third party working with the children. Advocacy for the best interest of the child requires deep understanding of the facts and legal issues of North Carolina law. Our family law attorneys will provide you with the professional and skilled legal representation you need.
