Secure Child Custody

Often the people affected the most by a divorce aren't the adults, but the children. An experienced lawyer can make all the difference in ensuring a big life change is handled in the best way possible.

The term ‘child custody' actually refers to two things: physical custody and legal custody. Physical custody refers to the parenting schedule – how much time the child spends living with each parent.

There's also legal custody – which is decision-making power over the child. Judges and attorneys always try to encourage the parents to come to a mutual agreement on how exactly these responsibilities are divided.

Child custody law is complicated and needs to be dealt with very carefully. Additionally, the laws around child custody vary greatly between states; the only way to fully understand your situation will be to sit down with an attorney.

To learn more about how child custody works in your state, read the articles we've written on the subject.

"Holly Mullin is the best thing that ever happened to me. I came to her after leaving an abusive relationship, scared to death. From the moment I met her I knew she was my lawyer. We filed my divorce at my consultation because I felt so confident and safe with her. We reached the end of my divorce when expected and achieved every goal we set. She communicated with me a lot throughout the process and kept me updated. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a family lawyer. In fact, I wouldn’t trust any other lawyer. She is so amazing and by the end of this process the sound of her voice was so comforting I felt like she was friend."
