Parenting: Your Most Important Time

Possibly the first question someone going through divorce asks is how much time will I get with my children. While there are state guidelines regarding visitation, working with an experienced attorney can ensure that each parent receives the quality time with their children they deserve.

Child Custody: The Child's Best Interest

At Shoemaker & Straw, PLLC, we represent our client's best interest. We understand that while the court seeks to create parenting arrangements that are in the "best interest of the child" these may not be the most reasonable arrangements for the parents. Appeals and modified arrangements to joint custody or sole custody orders can be created to fit both the needs and interest of the child or children and the parents. We will work assiduously with you to appeal an arrangement and create a viable alternative. Understanding that the court seeks is an environment where the child or children will flourish, we are able to present your case in the best light.
