Franklin County Divorce Attorney - Call (614) 426-8720
When you are going through a divorce, one of the most important subjects that should be on your mind is child custody and visitation. While these topics can quickly get volatile, the focus always needs to remain on what is in the best interests of your children.
With the help of my legal team, you can develop a plan that is right for you and your child. I understand that each case is unique, which is why I never offer cookie-cutter solutions. I have dedicated my practice to providing affordable, personalized family law representation. I know how important your custody case is to you and will help you develop the best plan for your family.
I help clients with all custody and parenting plan needs such as:
- Negotiating and drafting initial custody and parenting time plans
- Seeking modifications of custody and visitation
- Representing clients in relocation hearings
- Transferring custody orders to Ohio
How the Court Determines Custody
In my years of legal service, I have helped parents, grandparents, aunts and foster parents create plans for custody, visitation, and/or parenting plans. My goal is to protect your right to spend time with your child, maintaining the important connection between you and your children. If you are unable to agree with your partner about the custody of your minor children, the court will have to make the necessary decisions.
Factors the judge will consider include:
- The wishes of the child (if old enough)
- The child's relationship with each parent
- The child's home, school, and community
- The physical and mental health of all individuals involved
- The parent more likely to honor the other parent's visitation rights
- The criminal record of both parents
- Employment situation of each parent (or relative)
You have a right to spend time with your child!
I am here to help you negotiate and draft initial custody and parenting time plans. You can have confidence knowing that, should you decide to move down the road or need to make other custody or visitation modifications, I will be here to assist you.
In some cases, a post-decree modification may be needed, such as if one parent experiences a significant change in income. Other situations may involve a parent moving out of state, needing to adjust visitation arrangements due to job hours, or seeking to gain more time with a child. If you need to reach a new agreement over your child custody or visitation matters, I am here to help. Let me guide you through this complex process!
