Child Custody and Relocation
Skilled Family Lawyers Handling Child Custody Matters
When parents separate, the issue of child custody can erupt into a huge battle. Even if parents do agree as to which parent will serve as the primary custodial parent, they may still disagree regarding holidays and vacation times. When each parent wants to pass along family traditions, these can become sticking points in negotiations.
At the Scott Horenstein Law Firm, PLLC, in Vancouver, Washington, our team of lawyers provides skilled legal representation for all types of family law matters. When you're preparing for challenging child custody disputes, we can help. Contact us today to discuss your unique legal concerns with one of our attorneys.
- Child Custody: Creating a parenting plan that works for both parents can be challenging during a separation or divorce as tensions are running high. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators and mediators, who will work to create a child custody and visitation arrangement that is mutually acceptable.
- Non-Parental Custody: In some instances, it is truly in the child's best interests to be raised by a third party. When non-parental child custody will improve the quality of the child's life, we represent grandparents and other family members seeking to obtain primary custody.
- Relocation: Generally, child custody arrangements provide children regular contact with both parents - but sometimes this simply isn't possible. Job opportunities or familial obligations may require one parent to move away. This can create a direct conflict with the existing child custody arrangement. In these situations, we provide comprehensive legal counsel to both custodial and non-custodial parents.
- Child Custody Modification: Although the custody arrangements established during a divorce or separation are intended to last until a child turns 18, sometimes this is not possible. Significant changes in life circumstances may warrant modification - we will guide you through the modification process.
Our attorneys have extensive experience resolving all types of family law disputes. We effectively represent our clients, while also considering the best interests of the children involved in any legal disputes. To discuss your legal concerns with one of our lawyers, contact our offices.
