Custody/Parenting Plans

An overarching theme of a divorce when children are involved is that actions taken on the children's behalf should be in their best interests. In practice, this often means crafting custody arrangements and parenting plans that keep disruptions to children's routines to a minimum.

The divorce and custody lawyers at Dietz & Overmann, PLLC, work with clients to come up with viable parenting plans that keep the focus on children while accounting for the needs of the parents. Our firm handles custody and parenting issues such as legal custody, physical custody, parenting time, visitation, shared parenting and relocation.

Quality Family Law Representation For You And Your Children

A parenting plan can go well beyond creating a schedule for where children will stay for a given day, week or month. Divorcing parents need to establish who is responsible for making important decisions regarding matters such as their children's education, health care and even their religious affiliation. Financial matters can be resolved as well such as which parent is entitled to claim the child as a dependent for tax purposes.

In some cases, custody needs to be determined if parents are unmarried at the time of a child's birth; in others, custody arrangements might be revisited if a parent is unable to properly care for his or her own children.

Our attorneys will stand by you at every step of the custody process.

Because all families are unique, each custody arrangement and parenting plan is a customized solution. Our family law attorneys are reliable, steady advocates for people who are going through the ups and downs of a divorce.
