Child custody matters frequently involve contentious disputes. Both parents, whether they are unmarried and ending their relationship or are going through the process of divorce, often believe they know what is best for their child. In some cases this is true. In others, it is in the child's best interests for his or her parents to negotiate an agreement that safeguards fragile family relationships.
At Todd & Dossett, P.C., we work with family law and child custody clients throughout eastern Tennessee. During his decades of practice, attorney Stephen Todd has gained a solid understanding of child custody law and recognizes the challenges his clients may be facing. His goal in every case is to establish child custody and visitation agreement that meets your needs and the needs of your children.
Options For Reaching A Child Custody Agreement
In child custody disputes, one of the most important facts to keep in mind is that, regardless of how you feel about your child's other parent, he or she will always have a tie to your child. The more you strive to keep things amicable between the two of you, the better it will be for your child.
In many cases our lawyers help clients reach agreement with their child's other parent without having to take matters into the courtroom. But if negotiations fall through, we do not hesitate to bring your case before a judge to determine orders surrounding:
- Primary and physical custody
- Visitation schedules
- Parenting plans/parenting time
