Recognized as one of the top ten family law firms by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys, our office fights to ensure any court orders issued are in your best interests.

Under court guidelines, parents are required to submit a parenting plan, detailing how parenting time and decision making authority will be allocated between both parties. If the parents are unable to negotiate an agreement on their own, the court will issue an order based on evidence in the case. Factors to be considered include:
Once an order is issued, it can be modified at a later date, but only if there is a significant change in circumstances. To help ensure any orders issued are in your child’s best interests, reach out to the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group.
