Child Custody & Visitation
Child custody issues often arise in divorce, dissolution, legal separation, and paternity proceedings. The focus in any child custody proceeding is on the children and developing a parenting arrangement that is in their best interest. For the benefit of the children, devising a parenting plan through mediation is an optimal avenue of alternate dispute resolution, as that process not only keeps the children out of the middle of the proceedings, but also results in less stress being placed upon the entire family unit. Robert has over 30 years of experience in representing clients in the mediation of their custody and parenting issues.
However, in some instances, the private mediation of custody issues is not possible, and the matter must proceed through the court system for a contested hearing. Such custody and parenting cases often involve situations in which problems with domestic violence, alcohol, drugs, and/or psychological issues of one parent necessitate litigation. Likewise, issues concerning the relocation of a parent out of the area, in what are typically known as “move away” cases, may require litigation. Robert has successfully represented clients in all aspects of child custody and parenting issues in court proceedings. He has the knowledge, experience, and determination to reach a result which is ultimately in the best interest of your children.
