Child Related Issues

Children don’t choose divorce, parents do. If you’re a parent facing the end of your marriage, you and your spouse also have choices to make beyond the decision to divorce:

  • Will you and your spouse keep your issues separate from your shared interest in the well-being of your children or will they become pawns in your ongoing disputes?
  • Will you be able to work with your spouse to reach agreements as to child support, custody, visitation, and living arrangements or will such matters be the source of more conflict to ultimately be resolved by a judge?
  • Will you be able to ensure that your children have all the resources they need and deserve for a bright and secure future or will you be left fighting a never-ending battle with your spouse about their obligations?
  • Will you find a lawyer who intuitively understands how important your children are to you and will do everything they can to protect and support them – and you – during this disruptive time?

Your Children Are Everything to You. Protecting Them is Everything for Us.

At Simpson Legal Group, LLC, we help parents and their children through the divorce process, keeping an unwavering focus on their well-being and vigilantly protecting your rights as a parent. While we may not be able to completely shield children from the upheaval divorce can cause, we do everything we can to protect them on the crucial matters that affect their day-to-day lives, now and for years to come.

With over 20 years of experience in child-related divorce issues, we have a thorough and deep understanding of the law and how that law is applied. But we also are acutely aware of the practical and emotional challenges that parents face during divorce proceedings. We work closely with each client to learn about their situation and their concerns. By truly understanding our clients, we can develop an approach best suited to each case.

Sound Guidance on All Divorce Issues Involving Children

We endeavor to minimize conflicts between parents whenever possible. With civility and professionalism, we strive to work with your spouse’s attorney to reach agreement on all issues that impact your children, including:

  • Temporary orders for child custody and support while the divorce is pending
  • Custody arrangements
  • Physical placement and living arrangements
  • Division of parenting time
  • Parenting agreements, addressing such issues as daily schedules, overnights, vacations, education, extracurricular activities, and more.
  • Parental relocation requests
  • Post-divorce modification of custody and support arrangements

If your spouse is uncooperative about custody, living, and visitation arrangements or is less than forthcoming about their financial situation in an attempt to avoid their support obligations, we will work tirelessly to ensure that they meet those obligations. Whether at the negotiating table or in the courtroom, we are determined and effective advocates for you and your children. We will do everything we can to put you and your children in the best possible position to grow and thrive.
