Child Custody/Child Support

Child Custody Lawyers

In the wake of a divorce or separation, the most critical issue facing mothers and fathers is how to work out parenting issues. At the law firm of Redden, Mills, Clark & Shaw, LLP, our child custody attorneys understand the impact that custody and child support issues have on families. We have the skill and experience to help you achieve a happy and stable future for yourself and your children.

Child Support Solutions

At Redden, Mills, Clark & Shaw, LLP our attorneys believe that when it comes to family law issues, the needs of the children always come first. Custody and support cases can be complex, but there are certain questions that must always be addressed, including:

  • Where will your child live?
  • Who will pay for your child’s medical needs?
  • Who will pick up your child after school?
  • What will be the visitation schedule and arrangements?

Our divorce lawyers can help you answer these questions. We can also help you with visitation arrangements, as well as any custody modifications or support modifications that may need to be made when circumstances require a change, such as in the case of relocation. You can rely on our skill and experience to help you reach long-term solutions that put the needs of your child first.

Helping You Reach an Agreement

There are alternatives, such as mediation and collaborative law, which enable you and your ex to reach your own agreements regarding custody as part of your divorce settlement. These alternatives are often less costly and time-consuming than traditional litigation. Whichever path you choose, you can rely on us to work toward your goals with sensitivity and understanding.

Helping You Reach an Agreement

Using a method of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) such as mediation can save you significant time and expense over courtroom litigation. At Redden, Mills, Clark & Shaw, LLP, our attorneys can help you mediate your differences and reach an amicable solution to a variety of family law matters, including:

  • Divorce
  • Child custody and child support
  • Property division

The Benefits of Mediation

As ADR methods such as arbitration and collaborative law have become more commonplace, courts are often ordering couples into mediation before litigating their divorce case. In addition to cost and time savings, mediation tends to be less stressful and emotional. Children often benefit as well because they are not subject to a contentious court battle. Our family law lawyers have extensive experience with the mediation process and will use it to help you effectively meet your needs.

We can effectively use ADR methods as a means of reducing your stress in a family legal dispute.
