Dependable Advice About Child Custody and Visitation in Montgomery County
No divorce issue generates more anxiety than child custody. Once you understand your legal rights and responsibilities as a parent, however, you'll probably find that you can reach a mutually acceptable resolution with the other parent on matters of custody and access to your children. At Bromberg Rosenthal LLP, our attorneys are fully committed to helping parents achieve stable and secure relationships with their children after divorce, most often through negotiation but sometimes in family court.
Contact us in Rockville to learn how a thorough understanding of the way the law regards child custody and parenting time issues can help you develop and achieve practical objectives for yourself and your children. We offer comprehensive client service on the full range of parent-child issues in Maryland and Washington, D.C. divorce: primary physical custody, visitation schedules, grandparents' rights or parental fitness issues related to mental illness or substance abuse.
No matter what specific aspect of child custody or parenting time is likely to present obstacles in your situation, you should be aware that the best interest of the child will be the paramount consideration that guides a judge's decision when disputes go to court. Because it can be hard to predict how a judge will view a child's best interest under a given set of facts, most parents will achieve their objectives and avoid uncertainty through focused negotiations that take full account of the circumstances of your family's characteristics and needs.
Although the law presumes that frequent and regular contact with both parents will be in a child's best interests, it often develops that one parent will try to restrict or eliminate the other's right of custody or unsupervised visitation, based on allegations that might prove to be well-founded, exaggerated or entirely fabricated, as the case may be. We work with clients on either side of parental fitness disputes to ensure that the best interests of the child are reconciled to the greatest extent possible with the parent's objectives.
