Child Custody and Support

We  advocate for the best interests of children to ensure a secure future for your children after a divorce. The attorneys at JLP Legal provide strong legal counsel and determined advocacy. We handle matters including: 

  • Child support -- Parents share the responsibility of supporting their children. Our attorneys will seek an arrangement in which you receive or pay an equitable amount of the financial support required to raise your children.

  • Child custody and visitation -- We advocate for parenting time to be divided in a way that grants a child stability and safety and preserves your parental bond. We assert our clients' rights to make decisions about how their children are raised.

  • Adoption -- A biological parent's change of heart or an immigration problem can turn the joy of adoption into a nightmare. We assist with the complex legal process of adoption so you can add to your family.

  • Juvenile delinquency -- If your child ends up in trouble with the law, their future and your parenting rights may be threatened. When authorities interfere with your rights, a zealous advocate can help to cut the bureaucratic red tape.

In all of these matters, we work tirelessly to protect your children's welfare and your rights as a parent. 

When the welfare and security of your children are at stake, you want a strong legal advocate to fight for their best interests. If you face the devastating prospect of losing time with your children or forfeiting other essential parental responsibilities, a knowledgeable attorney can assert your rights to raise your child in a healthy, thriving environment. At JLP Legal, we represent clients in child custody disputes.  We are committed to protecting your ability to maintain a meaningful relationship with your child. 

In many cases, Children are best served when parents maintain a cordial relationship. The structured process of mediation can help you both set aside anger and hostility and focus on the crucial issues concerning your children. Mediation can be a highly effective tool for preserving stability and peace in your home during the turbulent process of divorce: it reduces the stress of child custody conflicts and puts important child-rearing decisions in your hands, rather than in the hands of the court. Our attorneys are skilled at maneuvering negotiations toward agreements that protect your child's best interests and your parental rights. 

If your child's other parent refuses to compromise or expresses hostility toward you during negotiations, or if they pose a danger to your child's well-being, you must fight for your child's best interests in court. Our skilled and persistent attorneys will work to make sure that your children are protected and your parental rights are secure. The attorneys at JLP Legal we represent clients in matters related to: 

  • Timesharing arrangements

  • Visitation rights

  • Grandparent visitation

  • Modification of custody 

  • Enforcement of orders

  • Decisions related to religion, education and upbringing of the child

The uncertainty of litigation often compounds the stress and upheaval already present in your lives at this time. But with our assertive attorneys by your side, you can feel confident that your children are protected and your parental rights are secure.
