Non-Parental Child Custody -- Improving the Quality of a Child's Life
Our family law attorneys help clients understand non-parental child custody and the circumstances under which third party custody is permitted. There are many family circumstances in which it is in the child's best interest to be raised and cared for by another family member, such as:
- A parent has an alcohol dependency problem
- A parent has a drug abuse problem
- A parent is in jail
- A teenage parent is too young to care for a child on their own
- The child is abused or neglected by the parent
- Other circumstances which show the parent is an unfit parent
In most circumstances, it is in a child's best interest to be raised by both biological parents. The child receives nurturing care and financial support from two loving parental figures rather than one. However, in today's changing society, children are often not receiving the appropriate care that they deserve.
We help grandparents and others through the non-parental child custody process. We work with the family to negotiate a third party custody agreement when possible. However, when a case is contested, we also have the experience to advocate for our clients in trial. In extreme circumstances, such as cases involving child abandonment, we are able to assist clients with family adoption proceedings.
We provide aggressive, responsive, and dedicated legal counsel to each client. Contact our Vancouver, Washington, law firm to speak with our experienced non-parental custody attorneys.
