- Child Visitation – In most situations, a child parental time schedule is established at the time of the divorce. However, these schedules may need to be modified as children increase activities at school and with friends. In addition, there are often disputes about whether a parent selecting not to exercise their right to parental time should be allowed to maintain that right. We strive to protect children’s interests and mother’s and father’s rights when representing clients in child parental time matters. It is important to understand that Court places the interests of the child foremost in any visitation matter.
- Relocation – In a society that is becoming increasingly mobile, parental moves are becoming increasingly common. Relocation cases are factually sensitive. The focus on these cases is what is in the best interest of the child. However, there are cascading effects on many aspects of a divorce agreement. When a custodial parent is allowed to move a child out of state as a result of a remarriage or a job, it can trigger changes in child support, child custody, visitation, and alimony.
