If you are at odds with your child’s other parent about where your child should live, how much time they should spend with each parent or how they should be raised, it is essential to seek the advice of a qualified family law attorney.

Strategic Mediators Work For Fair Parenting Time Agreements
Children are best served when parents maintain a cordial relationship. Through the structured process of mediation, couples can often set aside hostility and agree on key decisions affecting their children. Mediation can be a highly effective tool for parents to preserve their children’s well-being and the stability of their lives during the turbulent process of divorce. It takes some of the stress out of child custody conflicts and puts important child-rearing decisions in the hands of the parents rather than the court.
Our attorneys use mediation strategies as needed, and in some cases, as directed by family law courts, to guide the negotiation process toward resolution.
Skilled Litigators For Representation In Family Court
Agreement may be difficult in contentious negotiations between separated or divorcing parents. In some cases, litigation is necessary to protect a child’s best interests. When one parent will not compromise or expresses hostility toward the other parent, negotiations inevitably fail. Sometimes a parent may even pose a danger to the child’s well-being. In these cases, litigation is the most appropriate forum for establishing parental rights.
Our firm’s methodical approach to litigation enables our clients to feel confident that their children will be protected, and their parental rights will remain secure. The attorneys at Morse Busby Andrews & Terry LLP represent clients in the following common concerns:
