The Children’s Law Center recognizes that contentious custody litigation between parents often places children in uncertain and uncomfortable positions.  Litigation can create tension among friends, teachers, coaches and care providers upon whom children rely for comfort, support and stability during a very difficult time.  Children of all ages are affected by these changes in their various relationships.  We work to minimize the negative impact to children.  Unfortunately, in many cases, litigation on one level or another is simply unavoidable.

When a case must be litigated, our attorneys approach that litigation with the children’s best interests playing a preeminent role guiding the ultimate strategy.  We know that results matter, and we employ our extensive training and experience to obtain the best possible outcome for our clients without ignoring the importance of maintaining healthy and productive relationships for the children.  Despite the remarkable resiliency that many children demonstrate during their parents’ divorce, the process still takes a toll on them.  No two situations are the same.  In addition to our own experience, we regularly work with a network of experts to ensure that the unique characteristics of each case and each child are continually assessed and considered, ensuring that the children’s interests are safeguarded throughout the process.
