Child Custody and Support

Child custody cases are never easy, and they are known to be one of the most difficult types of legal battles there are. Following a divorce, parents can be vindictive and spiteful of one another, which leads to the case being very emotionally charged. Sometimes, neither side is willing to back down to settle the case in a fair manner. Oftentimes, one parent may be seeking full custody while the other tries to protect their own rights to be in their children’s lives. The final verdict will depend on how you build the case and how the court perceives your ability to care for your children.
