From the moment you become a parent, your child becomes your primary focus, and your life is forever changed. You will do anything to protect your children, making their best interests your highest priority. Some parents can’t fathom being away from their children, and will sometimes even change career paths to dedicate more time to being at home.
Unfortunately, divorce often means being separated from your child, whether for a few days or in some cases, weeks or months at a time. Many people worry the breakdown of their marriage will mean a breakdown of their relationship with their children.
For many of today’s parents, bad memories about their own parents’ divorces are enough for them to worry how their children will handle the emotional upheaval that comes along with separation.
Fortunately, there is good news when it comes to child custody. Lawmakers and courts alike recognize that children need meaningful relationships with both parents. The days of rigid, one-size-fits-all custody arrangements are long gone.
Surprisingly, a growing number of families are able to work out their own custody arrangements that are best for their unique situations. Many people enter into flexible agreements that accommodate the busy lives and schedules of both the parents and children.

Experience Matters – and Can Make All the Difference
The Law Office of Jeffrey Thompson has over 35 years of experience representing parents in child custody cases.
In any child custody case, it’s normal to have a lot of questions. Does your child get a say in where he or she lives? What if you or your ex needs to move out of state? What happens when an ex won’t let you see your child? These are all valid questions.
