Understand your rights in child custody and visitation
When you’re going through a divorce as a parent, your biggest concerns are the best interests of your children and how you can protect your relationship with them. Decisions made today will impact you and your family down the road, and it’s important to take the time to make appropriate choices about custody, visitation rights and parenting plans.
With so much at stake for you and your children, you need an experienced attorney on your side who can help you understand your child custody options. Gena R Larison and staff are experienced and understand how important your relationship is with your children. We will work hard to educate, protect and advocate for you throughout the entire process.
In every family law case that involves children, the court considers the “best interest of the child” legal standard to determine child custody issues.
More specifically, there are a number of factors used to determine what is in the best interest of the children in each individual case. These factors include a child’s age, the physical and mental health of parents and children, the relationships children have with their parents and community, and the wishes of the parents and the children.
Gena R. Larison will help you understand your child custody and shared parenting options and how they may impact other areas of your divorce, including child support and decision-making rights.
