CUSTODY & VISITATION LAWYER FISHERS HAMILTON COUNTY INDIANA
Custody and Parenting Time - Kids Matter
Nothing in family law seems to incite more emotion than a contested custody case. To a lesser extent, cases involving parenting time (visitation) and child support can also be highly emotional. It is not unusual for children, even very young children, to get caught in the crossfire between parents. Handling these cases requires the lawyer to understand the individuals and circumstances involved in the case. Both lawyer and client must be mindful of the effect that the case may have on the best interests of the children.
Since these cases can be hotly contested, an individual seeking relief needs to understand the nature and scope of the commitment that our law office demands of its clients. In addition, these cases can be procedurally bewildering to the uninitiated. The law firm takes many steps to ensure that our clients fully understand the applicable court rules and procedures, the applicable substantive law, and the applicable factual and practical considerations involved in investigating and proving his or her case in court. Strategies can vary from case to case, but our experience teaches that virtually every client wants to know and understand the strategy choices that are applicable to his or her particular dilemma.
