Child Custody and Visitation
Many parents have kept or attempted to keep a marriage together “for the sake of the children.” But sometimes, no matter how loving the intentions, things don’t work out the way they were planned. When a marriage breaks down to the point where divorce is inevitable or in process, the children are at high risk of ending up in the crossfire of domestic stress. As parents contemplate separating from each other, disputes about custody and visitation are almost unavoidable. Even when both parents are devoted to looking out for the “best interest of the children,” they can’t always agree as to what that is. In many instances, parents are able to work through these emotional issues on their own and work out a plan that makes sense, given the circumstances. Other times, mediators can facilitate this process. In the event that agreement can’t be reached, the court will intervene, sometimes with the help of court personnel or a Guardian ad litem. This can be a challenging and confusing time for many parents. Mistakes made during this process can have serious, long-term consequences. If you’re a parent facing divorce, it’s important to be well-informed. Attorney Holdsworth has helped many parents navigate these challenging times with a sincere sensitivity to the needs of both her client and the children.
