Child Custody

Child custody disputes can be one of the most heart wrenching issues in any divorce. Parents divorce each other, not their children. In most cases a child will primarily reside with one parent and maintain regular visitation with the other. Determining which parent the child will primarily reside with can be rather complicated. The courts look at the past pattern and practices between each parent and the child to determine what is in the best interest of the child.
 
Custody battles can lead to extensive and expensive litigation. Once the parties settle this issue, the divorce progress can be shortened and the cost may be reduced. If the custody dispute is not resolved by the parties, then it is paramount that a party finds an attorney skilled in this arena. Almost 30 years of practice has provided Jacque with extensive knowledge and expertise in suits involving child custody disputes.
