You need an experienced litigator to help you resolve these issues.
Children are best served when they maintain contact with both parents. Courts have historically favored the mother in child custody cases, but today most jurisdictions no longer presume that a child belongs with its mother. While the law often requires parents to be treated equally in all custody and visitation decisions, fathers often use their financial position to their advantage. At Leigh K. Galyon, APC, we are committed to making sure that custody decisions take the interests of the mother and the children into account. We work to help you achieve an optimal solution to your custody case.
In some cases, litigation is necessary to protect your interests. When one parent refuses to compromise or expresses hostility toward the other parent, negotiations fail. Sometimes a parent may even pose a danger to the child’s well-being. In these cases, litigation is the most appropriate forum for establishing a mother’s rights. Our firm’s methodical approach to litigation enables you to feel confident that your children are protected and your parental rights are secure.
