Experienced & Knowledgeable Family Law Attorney

Milford Child Custody Attorney

At my Milford, Massachusetts, law firm, I represent clients in matters of child custody and parenting plans (often called visitation). I help parents establish custody in a divorce or paternity proceeding, and I also assist with the modification or enforcement of child custody orders.

I have always had a strong interest in children and, as an attorney, I am dedicated to protecting their best interests. Keeping parents involved in the lives of their children is critical, so I fight to protect the relationship when it is appropriate. In the event there is a question of parental fitness due to substance abuse, violent behavior, or severe mental illness, I will work zealously with the custodial parent to protect the child from these behaviors.

Work With A Compassionate Advocate Who Really Listens

Every single situation is different. Children have different schedules and needs, and what is best for one family may not be best for another. When you work with me, I take time to really listen to your situation. We begin by talking about your child's needs, your relationship with the other parent and the issues you face. I can tell you how the law may affect your case. Together, we can talk about the best course of action for achieving your goals. When necessary, we work with a range of professionals to support and strengthen your case.

In Massachusetts, courts evaluate the "best interests of the child" when considering matters of child custody. To determine what a child's best interests are, they consider many factors, including the child's relationship with both parents, his or her daily routine and needs. In some cases, experts may be called on to help with this determination. These experts include child psychologists, as well as guardians ad litem, who are individuals that investigate and evaluate the best interests of children and communicate their findings to the court through a written report and testimony, when warranted.
