hether your case is related to a divorce or a paternity action, we will work hard to see that you and your child can spend as much time together as possible in the future.
We are skilled at handling the most challenging child custody cases. This includes cases that involve allegations of domestic violence or child abuse. This may be a real threat, and your child will need protection. In some cases, the other side may be making baseless allegations in order to unfairly gain the upper hand. We know how to deal with these situations.
The Best Interest Of The Child
When it comes to child custody and visitation, the driving principle in Mississippi is to do what is in the best interest of the child. In most cases, this means having parenting time split between both spouses in some sort of joint custody arrangement. We will educate you about joint custody, sole custody, legal custody, physical custody, and all other options and issues.
Changing Child Custody Arrangements
Child custody schedules are never truly permanent. In many cases, the needs of the parents or the needs of the child change over time. Those changes will require child custody modification. In other cases, parents come to us because their initial case was not handled well and their relationship with their children is being damaged because of it. We may be able to repair the damage and pursue fair child custody and visitation arrangements.
