It is common for individuals to seek sole custody, or sole parental responsibility. However, it is important to note that the courts are hesitant to grant this type of custody request unless specific and extenuating circumstances exist that warrant this type of arrangement. The courts usually see the involvement of both parents as in the child's best interests and will require a showing of abuse or criminal behavior before granting sole custody.

Military Parents

We assist military servicemen and women in dealing with custody issues. One specific issue that often arises is the right of a military parent to have incorporated into the custody or visitation agreement the ability to designate a family member to stay connected with the child in the event that the mother or father is deployed.

When a parent wants to move with a child out of state, it may be necessary to obtain the permission of the court before the relocation can take place. Our firm can help you navigate the modification process, whether you are seeking the relocation or attempting to block a parent from relocating.
