Child custody issues arise most often in the context of divorce. But there are many other times when custody becomes a dispute between parents, such as unmarried parents, grandparents or in situations where one or both parents cannot care for the child.
The Dummit Law Firm is experienced in dealing with the many forms that child custody matters come in. We represent individuals through the divorce process and when there are children involved, we manage those issues as well. We represent single parents, unmarried parents and even other family members. The care of a child is a great responsibility and we are here to help our clients and their children toward a successful future.
Our Standard of Excellence Is Making Sure Your Child's Best Interests Are Represented
Our child custody practice is focused on helping people obtain the rights to see their children or grandchildren. We understand the importance of the family unit and the importance of the best interests of the children. We strive to protect the parental and grandparent rights of the individuals we work with, but always within the framework of what is best for the child.
Our Winston-Salem child custody attorneys help clients with all child custody matters, including:
- Physical custody
- Legal custody
- Joint custody
An area of our family law practice that has grown is that of father's rights. Often, fathers need additional help knowing what rights they have, which rights they can voluntarily give up and what the legal consequences are. The lawyers here have worked extensively on behalf of fathers to make sure their rights are protected and that they can have a chance to be a part of their child's life.
In addition, when parents split the children up, grandparents often lose the ability to see their grandchildren. We can help with grandparents' visitation rights so that our clients can maintain a relationship with their grandchildren.
