Child Custody

When couples separate, the question of who will get child custody is often the most contentious and complicated. In the courts and at our family law firm, safeguarding the rights and well-being of children is a high priority.

The child custody lawyers of Puhl Law Group, P.C. have successfully represented clients in all aspects of divorce-related issues involving children — custody, support and visitation. Our experience has shown us the harmful effects a lengthy tug-of-war can have on a child, and we strive for a timely resolution to minimize the level of anxiety and discord.

With the best interest of the child as our focus, we also work to protect our clients’ parental custody rights. We help them understand how their decisions and treatment of their spouse will affect the child. Often we recommend working with a mediator to help facilitate compromise and encourage effective negotiation.

Of paramount importance is that both parents maintain an accessible and healthy relationship with the child.
