Child Custody

Some of the most emotionally painful and closely contested issues that can arise in a divorce case are those concerning each spouse's access to the children. At the law firm of Fausone Bohn, LLP, our team will work with you to make sure that you have a solid understanding of your rights and responsibilities with respect to child custody and visitation. Contact us to learn how we can help anticipate and resolve any problems you might encounter as a divorcing parent in protecting your relationship with your children in a manner consistent with the children's best interests.

Divorcing parents are strongly encouraged to resolve custody disputes themselves through agreement, if possible. If the parents are unable to agree on such issues as the child's primary residence or a visitation schedule, the Court will get involved. Our experienced divorce attorney, Mark Mandell, can advise you as to the impact of any special circumstances on your rights as a parent, whether they apply most directly to you or to your spouse. Just as importantly, we can help you formulate realistic objectives for securing and strengthening your relationship with your children over time.

Because conditions over time can change, we also represent parents in post-judgment proceedings to modify particular provisions of a parenting plan. In order to show that changing the current arrangements will be in the best interests of the child, it is necessary to demonstrate that the changed circumstances presented in favor of modification are substantial and material, and that the proposed change will be in the child's best interests.
