Understand Your Options and Make Informed Decisions

Ms. Watson is skilled in crafting creative solutions for custody arrangements and possession schedules. Regardless of whether you are interested in a standard child custody arrangement or would like to create your own parenting plan through the collaborative divorce process, or a mediated divorce, our office can explain what is involved and prepare and file all necessary paperwork. With her years of experience in this area, she can foresee potential problems with certain solutions and inform you as to potential consequences to each option in your case. She can correct any misunderstandings or misinformation clients may have and help them to have realistic expectations for their case. If you have not been the primary caregiver, it may be hard to obtain sole physical custody. If you have been the primary caregiver, it may not be realistic to expect a judge to cut off the other parent's rights.

Protecting what is in the Best Interest of a Child

Ms. Watson helps you separate the hard feelings from what is best for the child. We will seek to resolve child custody disputes through negotiation and settlement and to foster cooperation among divorcing partners for the sake of the children. However, if it appears that litigation is the only option, then we will thoroughly and aggressively battle for your child custody rights in court.

Protecting the Rights of Unmarried Parents

If you are an unmarried parent, you can seek to establish a possession schedule and support arrangement to protect your rights to parenting that child and to provide stability for that child.

Clients say : "I was told many times that there was no chance for me as the father to get custody of my daughter. Thanks in no small part to Lori's persistence and hard work, my daughter now lives with me. Lori was always willing to listen and negotiate, but she showed the toughness and willingness to fight when required."

Clients say : " I am the single mother of a 5 year old child. Our situation is somewhat complicated because my daughter’s father and I were never married and he lives out of state. My daughter has never lived with her father which has made it difficult for the two of them to form a strong parent/child relationship. I had an attorney, whom at the time was not practicing family law." read more >>
