Child Custody and Visitation
When handling child custody and visitation issues the court uses a best interest of the child standard. We can help you to obtain your preferred custody and visitation arrangement. As your family law attorney we are your advocate. LJ Law works to protect your rights, your children’s rights and your family’s rights.
Child custody encompasses both physical and legal custody of a child. Physical custody of a child refers to the parent with whom the child will primarily reside. The court may decide that both parents should share physical custody of the child. Legal custody allows one or both parents to have the right to make legal decisions for the child.
Your children may have a tough time understanding that their parents are no longer together, which is why you need experienced child custody attorneys who can create the best environment possible for your children.
We can help you with your guardianship petition. A guardian is required to provide all of the child’s basic needs, however, the biological parents may still be financially responsible for the child.
Other types of guardianship include a Guardian Ad Litem. This person is given legal authority to care for and make decision for another person and their property. Guardians Ad Litem are usually appointed when the person is unable to care for themselves or their interest. LJ Law can help in having a guardian appointed or revoke a guardianship order.
