Protecting And Enforcing Your Parental Rights
When a divorce or breakup involves children, child custody and visitation issues are most parents' top priority. Understandably, as a parent, you want to maximize the amount of time you spend with your kids. However, it is important to remember that parents have equal rights when it comes to child custody. Having an experienced lawyer on your side to help protect and enforce your rights is extremely important.
At the law office of Neil Kerr, Attorney at Law, we have significant experience representing clients in child custody proceedings. Our Russellville custody attorney serves clients in Logan County and surrounding areas, including Franklin and throughout Todd County, Simpson County, Christian County and Warren County. We are a cost-conscious law firm committed to providing affordable representation tailored to meet our clients' needs and goals.
Meeting Your Unique Needs
In custody cases, it is important to keep your long-term relationship with your children and their other parent in mind. You will likely need to continue to co-parent with your former partner. Working out a custody and visitation arrangement together, without a courtroom battle, is typically the most beneficial choice for everyone involved. We will take the time to understand the unique facts of your case to help you obtain the results you desire.
However, there are times when a mediated solution is not a viable option. Often, in fact, both parents simply cannot agree upon a change in custody or time-sharing because only one parent wants it. These cases require thorough preparation and an attorney who knows how to handle highly contentious hearings when so much is at stake for the client, i.e., their children. We are prepared to provide strategic and aggressive litigation when necessary.
Child Custody Modifications
Our law firm routinely represents parents in child custody modifications. Often, our clients in this area used a different lawyer for previous divorce and family law proceedings. As years go by, circumstances change and custody agreements must be modified to fit the evolving needs of the children and parents. Whether your initial custody case was settled in Kentucky or another state, our law firm can assist you.
