Child Custody And Parenting Time Assistance In Everett And Snohomish County
The issues in a divorce are between you and your spouse, but children can also suffer significant consequences. Single-parent households often mean older children take on more parenting roles for younger kids. The emotional burden that instability at home places on their shoulders can also cause behavioral problems at school.
Protecting You And Your Children Without Litigation
As you go through complex issues with your family, make sure to keep the best interests of the children involved at the top of your mind. This will also be the court’s focus when making decisions about child custody, parental rights and child support. You need to work with a lawyer who understands how the law will influence your case and will emphasize the importance of children’s issues and emotional well-being in divorce.
As a mother herself, our founding attorney Lani Akiona understands the challenges you face as a parent trying to provide the most stable and happy home life for your kids. At Akiona Law, PLLC, we will pursue opportunities for amicable and cooperative settlements when possible by using mediation or collaborative divorce.
