Child Custody: Protecting Your Children And Your Rights
Legal issues involving children can quickly become divisive. The results can impact your relationships, your financial security and the well-being of your family. When faced with a family law dispute, it is important to work with an experienced legal team that is capable of protecting your rights and the best interests of your children. At Bleczinski Kleiman & Klein, LLC, we will take a strategic approach to developing the best possible solution for you and your children.
At the time of divorce, you want to do what is best for your child. It can be difficult to make decisions and come to an agreement, especially when your own rights are at stake. We represent and counsel families on a variety of legal issues affecting children, including:
- What kind of physical custody arrangements would work best for your family?
- Will physical custody of the children be shared and, if so, how?
- How will parents make the decisions regarding the health, education and welfare of the children?
Legal Custody And Physical Custody
Custody issues can involve the legal custody of the children (i.e., a parent’s right to make decisions regarding where a child goes to school, religious practices, health care and other important issues) or physical custody (which can include arrangements for a primary custodial parent and/or a shared custody schedule). These can be addressed at the time of a separation, divorce or other time during the family’s history. They can also be modified as the needs of the children change.
We Handle A Wide Range Of Custody Issues, Including:
- Custody after divorce
- Custody for unmarried parents
- Parenting time/parenting plans
- Visitation agreements
- Supervised/unsupervised custody
- Grandparents’ rights
- Shared parenting
- Modifications and enforcement
What About The Children?
If you have minor children, you want to do what’s best for them. The decisions you make now will likely have a great impact on their future. Working with other experts such as psychologists or evaluators can be helpful to families as they create and define their post-divorce parenting relationship.
We think court should be a last resort in many divorce and family law cases. Our lawyers have devoted their careers to helping families work through the many issues of divorce in a way that will protect the best interests of your children.
