Individuals may deal with custody issues during a divorce, after a divorce, or as part of a relationship that may not have included marriage. We know how to handle and counsel you on any of these situations. We know that nothing is as important to you as your children or grandchildren, and we will treat your case with the utmost sensitivity and respect in all custody matters.
Many couples do not realize that a different set of laws apply to custody of children whose parents are not married. It is in the best interests of your children for you to legally establish custody and paternity of your children if you are not married to the child's other parent, simply because these things are not automatically established if you are not married.
