Boston Child Custody Lawyers
Just as disagreements over parenting styles and children's upbringing become serious problems in some marriages, disagreement on how much time children will spend with each parent is often the most imposing hurdle to clear in divorce. It is critical for both divorcing parents to understand that our courts prioritize the best interests of children - but this is often not enough to prevent a custody dispute.
Boston Divorce Attorneys for Concerned Parents
At Cunha & Holcomb, we take a balanced yet assertive approach to all child custody, visitation and joint parenting matters. We strive to consistently provide the highly informed, realistic guidance necessary for divorcing parents to make sound decisions about how to proceed, and our Boston child custody attorneys are equally capable of taking action to:
- Establish a fair and beneficial shared parenting arrangement — including a manageable schedule and corresponding child support order — that does justice to children's needs as well as both mothers' and fathers' rights
- Advocate aggressively for a more exclusive or "sole" child custody order when necessary due to one parent's pattern of abusive behavior or other disfunction affecting his or her ability to parent
