I provide experienced legal guidance in family law, divorce and special education law. I represent parents and families throughout western Massachusetts.

Helping parents come to a fair child custody arrangement

For Massachusetts residents about to enter into the divorce process, there is undoubtedly much to think over. Splitting couples, in addition to considering property division and alimony issues, also have to make difficult decisions regarding child custody and child support. Child custody can be a particularly difficult matter because it determines how much time the child will get to spend with each parent.

Understandably, parents often have strong feelings about how a child custody dispute should be settled. Our firm is sensitive to the feelings of parents going through this process, and we help our clients fight for not only what is best for the children, but also what is fair to the parent.

Sometimes, child custody disputes can last long after a divorce is settled. In these cases, parents may wish to modify a child custody agreement, or a parent may try to prevent the other parent from keeping to their court-ordered visitation. Our firm can help with this process, fighting to make sure another parent does not try to limit a parent's rightful time with his or her child. Any changes in custody and visitation, too, our firm can help with. If a life situation changes, oftentimes a child custody arrangement needs to change, too. We help guide our clients through every step of this process.

When deciding on matters as important as child custody, parents understandably want to do what is best for their children. Our experienced attorneys fight to make sure a parent's needs and the needs of the child are protected. With vigorous representation, parents can often come to a child custody arrangement that best suits them and their children.
