Child Custody

What used to be known as custody is now divided into two separate but related concepts: parenting time, which is simply the time-sharing schedule, and legal decision making, which encompasses health care, education, religious training, and “personal care.” Knowledge of the law in this area is not even half the battle, and is less important than how that law applies to YOUR case and YOUR facts. And knowledge of the practices of the family court bench and the forensic psychologists is crucial. At DBSH, we have that knowledge. We do much more than pay lip service when we talk about a child’s best interests. We are fierce defenders of children.
