Attorneys Rebecca Perry and Julie pendleton understand that often the best outcome for children involved in a divorce is for both parents to agree upon an amicable shared custody or parenting time arrangement.
In North Carolina, courts are more and more in favor of granting joint custody of children in divorce. Sole custody arrangements have become almost nonexistent outside situations involving abuse, abandonment or addiction.
We can help you work toward a child support or custody agreement that meets the needs of both you and your child. For personal service and compassionate representation in your family law matter, contact Rebecca Perry and Julie Pendleton, Greensboro, North Carolina, child custody lawyers.
Asking the Right Questions When Negotiating Custody and Support
At our firm, we also know that leaving issues of child custody and child support up to the courts can limit our clients' ability to exercise their best judgment when it comes to the children. In any child custody or child support matter there are important questions the courts may be ill equipped to resolve, such as:
- What if the parents disagree regarding decisions affecting the children?
- What if a parent moves out of state?
- What if a parent wants to have his or her new love interest move in?
- Who will pay for extracurricular activities?
- Who will pay for college tuition once the children grow up?
- What if the parent providing financial support dies or becomes disabled?
We believe that it is extremely important to address parents' concerns before they become a problem. With years of experience, attorney Rebecca Perry knows what to anticipate and how to develop comprehensive parenting plans.
Avoiding Trial Through Skillful and Thoughtful Negotiation
Attorneys Rebecca Perry and Julie Pendleton work to resolve issues in a rational and cooperative way, setting a precedent for a continued loving and supportive relationship between the children and each parent. However, in the event an agreement cannot be reached, we are fully prepared to take your case to trial.
We can help you establish a workable visitation, custody and support arrangement, usually without the expense and emotional stress of a trial. We can also assist you in seeking a modification if there is a substantial change in circumstances that renders the original child custody or support agreement or order unfair and unworkable.
