Child Custody

In most divorces with children, both parents are very conscious of how their children's lives will change and the need to protect them. Unfortunately, parents' differing views on what is in children's best interests often make deciding on a fair custody arrangement and visitation schedule very difficult. Battles over domiciliary status can be intense and traumatic for everyone involved.
