The best interests of the child are the most important consideration in determining child custody and visitation. At Jim Pino & Associates, P.C. in Pelham, Alabama, we assist divorcing couples in establishing custody arrangements and modifying them as needed.
At Jim Pino & Associates, P.C., we represent our clients with establishing sole custody and joint child custody arrangements and visitation agreements. In establishing those schedules and quantifying the amount of time either parent wants to spend with their children, the courts focus on the best interests of the child.
It is possible to modify child custody, visitation, and child support arrangements after a final order is entered. Ensuring the welfare of the child and protecting their best interests means that there must be a material change in circumstances to justify a modification. A new employer in a different state, change of work, or a remarriage can necessitate a modification, sometimes from sole custody to joint custody and vice versa. Modifications when there are blended families with different custody arrangements and visitation schedules for all the children in the household can be challenging.
A continuing relationship with either parent is vital for a child's well being. Attorney Jim Pino works hard to present a convincing case to modify child support for his clients or defend them if they are disputing a modification put forth by their ex-spouse.
