Making Children A Priority
If you have minor children, getting a divorce can be a lot more complicated. You will need to make arrangements for where the children will live and the degree to which you and your former spouse will share decisions about how your children will be raised. This includes decisions about religion, discipline, school, health care, food, holiday and vacation schedules and many other essential elements that have a bearing on the well-being of your children. Whether you arrange for sole custody, joint custody or one of the parents decides to move away, your circumstances will require careful and individualized consideration to come up with a plan that serves the best interests of your children. Our firm will work with you to craft a sustainable and fair plan that facilitates your continued relationship with your children.
