Take The Fear Out Of Child Custody Battles

Nothing is more terrifying than the thought of losing your children or having to be separated from them. No one enters a marriage and has children thinking that one day, their children might not be able to spend every night at home in their own beds. Unfortunately, the reality is that not all marriages survive, and the byproduct of divorce that these wonderful children you created with your spouse will now have to spend time with each of you separately, in your separate homes.

At Burton McKinnish, PLLC, our attorneys are firm believers that their role is to provide legal expertise and strategy and that you, as our client, are the best asset to your child custody case because after all, who knows a child and their needs better than their parent?

Guidance You Can Depend On For Your Children

Sometimes by the time you reach the divorce breaking point, the thought of co-parenting in a positive manner seems like a dream. However, after a divorce is concluded, parents often are able to co-parent better than when they were going through the divorce because parents quit feeling threatened that they will lose their children.

We encourage our clients to rely on family, professional counselors, clergy and support groups to assist parents in dealing with divorce and in helping their children deal with divorce. In an ideal situation, both parents are able to put their marital problems aside and focus on the best interests of the children as divorce ensues. This is not always the case. In more acrimonious cases, our attorneys will steer clients in the right direction to help the parents and children both cope with the divorce and, if necessary, suggest tools such as custody evaluators, parent coaches, and/or guardians ad litem to assist the court in deciding the best child custody and child support arrangement for the children.
