In divorce cases where minor children are involved, there are many issues to be mediated or settled. They can include parental, grandparent and step-parent rights, child support, child custody and visitation, and post-divorce issues such as post-judgment enforcement (sometimes called contempt or show cause), and modifications to child support, custody and visitation agreements.

It is important to know that the court looks at the child’s best interest when making its ruling, not the interest of either parent; therefore it is vital to work with an experienced child custody attorney who can assist you in creating a strong case that protects your relationship.
