Allocation of Parental Responsibilities (formally known as Child Custody)

The dissolution of any marriage or partnership raises a plethora of issues. When children are involved, the resulting issues are even more complex as decision making and child support issues come to the forefront. To ensure that a fair arrangement, based upon the children’s best interests, is reached, you should contact a knowledgeable family lawyer.

Our law firm routinely handles allocation of parental responsibility (former known as child custody) cases and can help to determine the best  arrangement for you and your children. We will review the evaluator’s recommendations, identify the children’s preferences and explain how local and state laws impact your specific case and family situation. Considering these factors, our family lawyers will work with you to devise a parenting plan for your children.

Allocation of parental responsibilities encompasses the decision making responsibilities in four areas concerning the minor child.  The decision making responsibilities for the parents include the right to make decisions regarding the minor child's education, religion, health and extracurricular activities. These decisions can be made by both parents, or they can be decided by one parent.

Our team of allocation of parental responsibility attorneys will work with you to achieve the best possible outcome while preserving your parental rights and protecting your children’s best interests.
