Child Custody

Your Children’s Best Interests Matter

There is no other aspect of matrimonial and family law that is more challenging, emotional, and personal to our clients than the custody of and access to their children.

Our experienced attorneys guide our clients through both the legal and practical issues pertaining to custody and access, including parenting challenges they may face during the pendency of their matter and after its conclusion.  As every family is different, our attorneys take the time to learn what is important to our clients and understand the issues pertaining to them and their children.  This approach has been key to our success as matrimonial and family law attorneys.

We spend the time necessary to work with each client individually so as to educate them on the issues pertaining to their specific matter. If the matter is being litigated in the courts, we take the time necessary to explain the process to our clients. We believe that a client who is educated on matters pertaining to custody and access is in a position to make the best informed decision for them and their children.


Among the issues our attorneys will discuss with you are sole custody, joint custody, residential custody, weekly access, and holiday and vacation access. The best interests of the children is always a paramount concern to the Court when deciding issues of custody and access. We take the time to explain the importance of decision making as it pertains to our client’s children. These decisions include educational issues, medical issues, extra-curricular activities, and religious issues. These are important factors when negotiating or litigating issues pertaining to custody and access.

Our attorneys are also experienced in representing clients with respect to relocation whether they are desirous of relocating with their children or if they are looking to prevent their children from relocating away from them.

Our office has also represented grandparents who are seeking custody and access to their grandchildren. There are occasions when a third party, such as a grandparent, will need to act in the best interests of the children by seeking an award of custody or access. This can occur in instances when the biological parents are alive and also when a biological parent is deceased.
