Westport Child Custody Lawyer
A parenting plan will likely consist of legal custody, physical custody and parenting schedules. We do not like to use the term “visitation,” as no parent should “visit” with his/her child. The term “parenting plan” more accurately reflects that both parents have rights to be with their children and to share time with them. This may occur according to a fixed schedule or in some cases, with a less-defined arrangement and a great amount of flexibility.
We encourage parents to collaborate on issues of child custody. However, in some situations, litigation may be necessary. BRODER & ORLAND LLC will vigorously pursue the custody and parenting schedule that works for our client and their children. When a successful agreement is reached, children can emerge from the process with two parents still in their lives, and the difficult feelings associated with divorce should then be mitigated.
During the pendency of the divorce or at any time after it has occurred, either parent may wish to relocate with the children. These cases can be highly charged and emotional. We have tenaciously and successfully represented individuals on both sides of this issue.
