All too often, children become the casualties of divorce or other parenting litigation cases. The Stewart Law Office does not believe children should be used as a bargaining chip. When parents separate, decisions regarding the care and custody of the children must be made. Generally, the children and parents will be better served by putting the welfare of the children first and having the parents try to decide what is best for their changing family rather than litigation. The Stewart Law Office will work hard to address the needs of your children effectively and efficiently through aggressive negotiations to create a custody schedule that is in your and your child’s best interest.
However, we also recognize that sometimes a mutual resolution of your custody issues is not possible or beneficial for you and we are prepared to argue your case before the judge. Each custody case is unique just like you and your children. The court must determine what parenting arrangement is in your child’s best interests and we make sure that the court understands the important issues of your case.
If you have a family law need and would like to meet with an attorney, I am happy to schedule a free 30 minute consultation. After I’ve had a moment to understand your situation, I will explain your legal rights. Most importantly, you’ll have a chance to tell your story, ask any questions and determine if you feel comfortable with me representing you.
