Child Custody
Child Custody
We have experience handling child custody and visitation cases. We have also handled petitions for removal where the court grants permission for the child to be moved with the custodial parent to another state.
Divorce Practice
We have experience handling divorce cases from the simple and uncontested to the complex and difficult. Each case is different. Much depends on whether you and your ex can negotiate and compromise.
