However, there are certain circumstances when a trial is inevitable. If your dispute should go to trial, we will provide you with experienced legal representation.
During court proceedings, several things are taken into consideration to determine which parent should be granted custody. These include:
- The age of the child
- The mental and physical condition of the child
- The nature of the parent’s relationship to the child
- Financial stability of the parent
- Whether or not the child has special needs
- The age, and the mental and physical condition of the parent
The child’s well-being is of the utmost importance.

Finding Resolutions for Difficult Child Custody Issues
If a parent is not granted custody of the child, he or she will still be entitled to visitation rights unless the court determines that visitation would endanger the child. If the court decides that a parent may endanger the child (emotionally or physically), they may only be granted visitation rights if a third party is supervising the visit.
There are a surprising number of cases where allegations of abuse are falsely made. Oftentimes, these allegations are fabricated to give the other parent an advantage during the custody battle. It is crucial to have a competent and experienced attorney on your side to resolve these complex issues that often arise during custody disputes.
