Hanover Child Custody Lawyers

If you have children and you are facing a separation, your main concern is the amount of time you will be able to spend with your children. While it may not be the same amount of time to which you and your children have grown accustomed, it is possible to develop a custody schedule that serves the children's best interests.

We have more than 25 years of experience helping individuals navigate a variety of legal issues, including those involved with a divorce. Child custody is both emotionally charged and complex. We understand the importance of family. While the organization of your household may be shifting, your relationship with your children can remain intact. We are committed to helping you develop a plan that protects your children's best interests.

Child custody comes in two forms:

  • Legal: The right to make major decisions for the child regarding health care, education, religion and more
  • Physical: The time that a child spends with each parent

Physical custody comes in three forms:

  • Primary custody: A majority of the child's time is spent with one parent, while the other parent has partial custody.
  • Partial custody: Less than a majority of the child's time is spent with one parent, while the other has primary custody.
  • Shared custody: Each parent has significant periods of time with the child.

We also serve as court-appointed attorneys for the child, in high conflict custody cases. This experience gives us the opportunity to work directly with children in custody cases.
