Custody and Parental Access

Child custody is often the most emotional part of a divorce, and can often be a very contentious issue.  The underlying concern of any custody or parenting dispute is the best interests of the child or children.  However, if the parents cannot agree on what is in the child’s best interests, our Family Law attorneys at Reisman Peirez Reisman & Capobianco LLP will work for you and protect your parental rights, while also insuring that the best interests of your children are met, whether that resolution is joint, shared or sole custody.

We have extensive experience in dealing with father’s rights, parental alienation, forensic evaluation and domestic abuse (including orders of protection), all of which have a direct impact on the relationship between parents and their children, and the custodial arrangement which best meets the children’s interests.

In addition, after a divorce, one party may find that he or she desires to relocate because of a remarriage or a change in employment.  However, when children are involved, this can often cause emotional and legal ramifications if the other parent’s parental rights will be adversely impacted.  Our Family Law attorneys will protect your rights and interests to determine how to best continue the relationship with the non-custodial parent, and whether the desire of the custodial parent to relocate is in the best interests of the children.
