The main question on both parties' minds is often how each spouse can preserve his or her relationship with the child after the marriage ends. But it is not enough to simply devise a visitation agreement that satisfies both parents' desire for contact with their child: A parenting plan must always take into account the child's best interests as well.
If you have been diligent about financially supporting your child, it can be deeply upsetting when your ex-spouse attempts to undermine your relationship with your child by withholding access from you. Custody does not equal ownership. You have a legal right to be active and involved in your child's life.
I was SO glad to have you representing me in court. You gave me a sense of calm and I thought your demeanor was extremely professional, capable and unassuming. I felt I had chosen wisely in you and I appreciated your professionalism.
