CHILD CUSTODY VISITATION & SUPPORT

CASE REVIEW

Staying Focused on What Really Matters

The term “Family Law” covers a wide range of legal matters.

Divorce can have a devastating effect on the entire family. While incredibly hard on the couple whose marriage is coming to an end, it can be even harder on the children involved. Often they don’t even understand what’s happening. As with most family law disputes, emotions can take over, making it impossible to stay focused on the important issues. That’s why it’s important to have someone on your side with experience and an objective view of the proceedings.

As an experienced divorce and child custody lawyer, Lance D. Youd can help you negotiate and resolve your child custody and visitation disputes as amicably and efficiently as possible.

MEDIATION & NEGOTIATING CHILD CUSTODY, SUPPORT & VISITATION AGREEMENTS

In almost every case, divorce puts a strain on the parent-child relationship. You can prevent long-term damage, however, by staying focused on your child’s best interests. In many cases, this approach can take some of the strain off the relationship between the divorcing couple, as well. Reaching a fair and mutual agreement concerning your children doesn’t have to be a complicated, drawn-out process. Fighting over every little issue can become costly and cause unnecessary pain and resentment for everyone concerned. Having an experienced attorney on your side will help you separate the important matters from the unimportant and keep the focus on what is best for your children. The sooner you can reach a resolution, the sooner the entire family can move on to the next chapter of their lives.

YOUR CONTINUING ROLE AS PARENT & ROLE MODEL

Regardless of the final outcome of any child custody and support dispute, both parents play a vital role in their children’s lives, helping them adjust, grow, and find their own way in the world. An important goal should be to keep both parents involved in the daily lives of their children, as well as important decisions such as schooling, religion, and the medical care the children receive. Both parents have rights. Ensuring that these rights are protected should not be an acrimonious and hostile process. The children see what’s going on — it’s important to set a good example by working together toward a resolution while parents transition to separate households.
