Newport News Child Custody Lawyer
Every family is different. There is no one child custody plan that works for every situation. When you are involved in a child custody dispute, it is important to make sure that your attorney is focused on meeting your family's needs.
At Weisberg & Weisberg, P.L.L.C., we help parents protect their rights while meeting their children's needs. We will offer creative child custody solutions that are tailored to your family's unique situation.
Effective Child Custody Solutions
Child custody is one of the most emotional family law issues our clients' face. We know how stressful it can be to face the thought of losing your child, and we will give you the reassurance you need. We will give you honest advice and explain your options regarding:
- Legal custody - Even if your child does not live with you most of the time, you should still maintain your parental rights. Legal custody agreements ensure that both parents work together to make decisions that affect your child.
- Physical custody - A good physical custody plan will outline a daily schedule and how frequently the child spends time with each parent. We will work together to create a custody plan that meets your child's needs as well as your own.
That may mean living primarily with one parent. Maybe it means identifying which holidays will be spent with which parent. We will look at all of the factors involved in your custody dispute and divorce and help you create a plan that is in everyone's best interests.
Mothers and fathers start out on equal footing in custody cases. The important thing is doing what is best for your child.
When a Guardian ad Litem is Involved
As far as the courts are concerned, child custody disputes are all about doing what is in the child's best interests. A Guardian ad Litem (GAL) is often appointed to represent the children's interests.
We have extensive experience working with GALs throughout Hampton Roads. As soon as a GAL is appointed, we will engage them and help them understand our clients' situation. We facilitate conversations between our clients and GALs to help bring everyone onto the same page.
We represent mothers, fathers, grandparents and extended family members in custody and visitation cases. Call 757-528-2643 or contact us online to schedule an appointment with an experienced Virginia family lawyer. Hablamos español.
