Developing A Shared Parenting Plan That Meets Your Needs

When two parents are working, it can be difficult to manage child care and when two parents end a relationship, it can make an already challenging situation even more difficult. At Akiona Law, PLLC, we understand these difficulties and can work with you to develop a custody plan that will meet the needs of both you and your children. We will also work with you to establish a plan for child support, and can help you modify the support plan if necessary.

In child custody cases, men often feel like their rights do not matter to the court. We believe that both men and women have a right to be a part of family relationships. As your team of attorneys, we will work hard to protect your rights as a father or as a mother.

Making Child Custody Mutually Beneficial

Ending a relationship is often difficult and may result in negative feelings on both sides; however when children are involved, you will have to deal with your ex, like it or not. Our divorce and family law team will encourage you to try and put aside whatever feelings you may have toward your ex and focus on the best interests of your children. After all, this is what the court would do as well.

To avoid the expense and emotional turmoil of court litigation, it is very important to come to a mutual agreement in regard to child custody. We will encourage you to come to an agreement that will ultimately benefit not only your children, but benefit you as a parent as well. Often, parents are able to establish a parenting plan through negotiation, collaborative divorce or mediation. We have the skill and experience to guide you through these methods of alternative dispute resolution so you and your family can get through the custody process with your well-being intact.
