Child Custody & Visitation
Establishing or modifying a child custody agreement can be a challenging, emotionally charged endeavor. Understandably, parents want to spend as much time with their children as possible. But, it can be hard for them to see the situation from the other parent’s point of view. At The Law Office of Clark A. Miljush, I encourage parents to arrive at a mutual agreement before they begin legal child proceedings. When child custody matters become contested, they become expensive, time-consuming and stressful.
Whether you are going through a separation or divorce, or you need representation during a custody modification involving a parent moving away, I can assist you. If you know that you want to arrive at a mutual, uncontested agreement, I can help you determine the details. We will establish items such as:
- Where the child will spend time during the week, on weekends and on holidays
- Who will pay for medical, dental and vision expenses
- Decisions about education and extracurricular activities, including expenses
A parenting agreement can be as brief or detailed as you need it to be. It is important to keep in mind that the courts do not favor one parent over the other. Co-parenting is now encouraged and it is recommended that children interact regularly with both of their parents.
If you have questions about the different types of custody such as joint custody, sole custody and primary physical custody, I can help you understand the differences and determine what the courts will favor in your situation.
