Child custody matters can be, and often times are, the most contentious, emotionally draining and difficult of any area of law. Assuring that you retain an aggressive, knowledgeable, experienced attorney advocating for you, and your child or children, is essential.
A request for modifications of child custody is determined by specific legal standards, by the court. One must prove a “substantial” change in circumstances exists before the court will consider uprooting a child or children from the custodial parent. “Clear and convince g evidence” of the need for modification, in the child’s best interests, must be presented. If you are considering requesting a change in custody or you’re facing a “battle” over the custody of your child or children - a confidential, free consultation is essential in determining the appropriate strategy for you.
